What is the Old Perth Girls School?

The historic 1930s Old Perth Girls School building is iconic in its ‘Egyptian Art-Deco’ grandeur (it’s a thing apparently – check out the pyramids on the roof!). The castle-like building operated as a school for thirty years and then a Police centre for fifty years. Some remember going to school there. Others remember going there for traffic branch business. A few remember going there to visit major crime and the dog squad. Some of them are still in prison.

Earlier this year, Girls School hosted the FRINGE WORLD Festival run-away success event A Midnight Visit. Part choose-your-own-adventure, part theatre, part film-set, part playground; A Midnight Visit transformed 34 rooms into an unbelievable fantasy world, introducing a whole new audience to the area.

Girls School Cinema is one part of a larger plan to transform this historic building into a thriving creative precinct.
