Plans for the rebuilt La Mama Theatre were launched this week; renders have been used to help illustrate the project but cannot exactly represent the final project. Renders by Cottee Parker Architects.

In the aftermath of the Federal election, Screenhub editor David Tiley explored the impact for the ABC. He writes: ‘The ABC will have its indexation frozen for the next three years, which means that an effective $84m will disappear, structured as $14m by July 2020, $28m by July 2021 and $41m by July 2022. That boils down to $250,000/per week across the next financial year.’
