The Orford Odeon is a volunteer-run, registered, not-for-profit Community Association which screens films to provide a Cinematic Experience that is accessible financially to the entire Community and raise money to fund projects that are of benefit to the community of Glamorgan Spring Bay; in particular its young people.
Every month, and sometimes twice during school holidays, The Orford Odeon screens films. The Odeon Café serves popcorn, chocolates, healthy snack packs, beer, wine, champagne and soft drinks. To create a sense of occasion, decorations complement each film and add something very special to the night’s atmosphere and entertainment. Planned screenings available on the Orford Odeon website. A great way to experience Tasmanian Coastal Village life.
