Mission Statement

Friends of the Athenium Theatre & Cultural Centre have the primary responsibility as guardians of the Theatre, to protect its authenticity, and promote the productivity of the building. We do this by respecting its heritage value and augmenting the infrastructure necessary to meet both current and future needs of the community it serves. The Athenium enjoys a vital role as the community heart for the people of Junee, in addition to its theatrical role. Through their service and commitment, the Friends aspire to promote the facility and maintain its high level of usability; ensuring the needs of the people of Junee are met. Ongoing liaison with Junee Council, State Government departments and other existing organizations is pivotal in this success.


The Friends of the Athenium meet on the First Thursday of each month (except January) from 6:00pm.
Meetings are usually held at the Athenium Theatre itself — 89 Broadway, Junee.
Guests and visitors are most welcome to attend.
