If you’re an artist or band wishing to play at the theatre, please email for more information. Garfield Picture Theatre is actively looking for tribute and original bands to play at the theatre. We will require a video or recording of your band along with Facebook book page and any other marketing information you’d like to provide.


When you play at the theatre we provide online and print marketing as well as all sound and lighting including engineers for your show. Fred the owner also likes to look after the bands when they come to the theatre as he sees everyone like family, so he will often cook you a lovely meal before your show. Riders are also available depending on your Performance Agreement. The theatre has a dressing room available as well as on and off street parking.



If you’re just starting out, you may be interested in participating in our open mic nights, please email for more information. We are hoping to get this evening started early next year, so keep your eye out on our Facebook page for upcoming dates.



Recording and filming

Here at the Garfield Picture Theatre we think we have one of the most unique venues in and around Melbourne, so we’ve decided to put together a few packages to allow bands like you to record or film at the theatre. There are a variety of packages available. Keep your eye out on our Facebook page for more details or email

Artwork and Design

The Garfield Picture Theatre is associated with a creative design studio ‘SAF Creative Design’, who provides graphic design for album covers, videos, Facebook, web, A4 & A3 posters, banners as well as band logos.
