Cremorne Theatre

QPAC’s most intimate venue

The Cremorne Theatre is QPAC’s most intimate venue, where audiences can get up close to the performance.

The Cremorne Theatre is QPAC’s most adaptable venue, being able to convert from traditional proscenium to theatre-in-the-round, concert, cabaret, cinema or flat floor modes, depending on the needs of the production. With a maximum seating capacity of 277, audiences and performers can get closer to each other, making the Cremorne ideal for creative productions, cabaret, intimate concerts, theatre, launches and conversations and lectures.

Cremorne Theatre Stalls and Balcony Mode


The Cremorne Theatre entrance faces the South Bank Cultural Forecourt and river and is about half way along the side of our building. The closest parking is at the Performing Arts Car Park, although the Grey Street entrance to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre is also close by.

The safety of QPAC visitors and staff is our highest priority.

We’ve updated our cloaking policy to ensure everyone can safely enjoy their visit to QPAC.

Items larger than A4 must be left at the Cloak Room

Items such as backpacks and oversize items including large handbags and umbrellas present a trip hazard and are not permitted within QPAC theatres.

To avoid delaying your entry to the theatre, we strongly encourage patrons to avoid bringing to QPAC any items larger than an A4 sheet of paper. Backpacks, umbrellas and items – including handbags – larger than A4, must be left at one of our Cloak Rooms.

A large bag is defined as measuring 30cm long and 21cm wide or larger, or a bag that QPAC staff consider to be of an irregular size and which may create an unacceptable risk to the health and safety of patrons if permitted within QPAC theatres.

To ensure the safety and security of all patrons, QPAC reserves the right to inspect all bags and personal belongings that patrons wish to take into the theatres. Searches will be carried out courteously and discreetly.

Cloak Rooms are located at each theatre and are available to patrons with a valid ticket to a performance on that day.

If you are unsure whether a bag or other item needs to be cloaked, please seek guidance from QPAC Cloak Room staff.


Box Office and Cloakroom

The Box Office and cloakroom for the Cremorne Theatre are located at the ground floor entrance. Large bags and umbrellas must be left at the cloakroom.

Venue Location


Booster Cushions

A limited number of QPAC booster cushions are available and patrons are encouraged to bring their own soft cushions (not car booster seats) to avoid disappointment.

Eat & Drink

The Cafe, located on the ground floor at the Grey Street entrance to QPAC, is open every day and offers a variety of meals for the whole family.

The foyer bar and merchandise stand are located on the Stalls level (on Level 1).

Check with the bar staff during your visit, but it is usually OK to take drinks into the theatre, as long as they are in plastic cups.

Toilets

There are toilets on the ground floor, stalls and balcony levels of the Cremorne Theatre.

Lifts

A lift provides access to the Cremorne Theatre foyers from the ground floor. Check your ticket for your door number and go to Level 1 for Doors 1 and 2, or Level 2 for Doors 3 and 4.

What should I wear?

It’s not necessary to get dressed up to come to QPAC, although if you are coming to an opening night, it is likely that guests will be dressed to attend a special occasion. Usually smart casual dress is perfect. Because all of our theatres are air conditioned, you may want to bring a light wrap or jacket, especially if you are dressed for Brisbane summer weather.
