Under the majestic tree canopy, and with seats for 900 patrons and 300 seated on the ground, there is no better venue to enjoy a film on a warm Perth evening.
In 1927, William Somerville conceived the idea of a tree cathedral of Norfolk pine trees. Today the venue is best known for the Perth International Arts Festival's annual Lotterywest Film Season from November through to April.
Picnicking has become a traditional part of the pre-film entertainment and is a great way to soak up the ambience. The Somerville Auditorium is licensed with a comprehensive bar, has delicious dinner options, snacks, ice-creams and coffee.
The venue is also renowned for the annual In the Pines music festival organised by local community radio station RTR FM.
