Cummins Theatre

This heritage-listed theatre on Bates Street has been a proud fixture in Merredin's cultural history since it was relocated from Coolgardie in 1927.
The Theatre owes its existence in Merredin to Mr James Cummins, who was the Mayor of Kalgoorlie and owner of both the Kalgoorlie and Merredin breweries. Mr Cummins purchased the Tivoli Theatre (which had been built in Coolgardie in 1897) and had it dismantled and sent in pieces to Merredin by train. Here, the thirty year old theatre was rebuilt where it stands on Bates Street. Cummins Theatre, renamed in honour of its founder, opened to the public on 10 October 1928.
