Welcome to Village Roadshow's corporate website
Founded by the late Mr. Roc Kirby in 1954 in Melbourne, Australia with a drive-in cinema, Village Roadshow has been listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) since 1988. With the Company’s roots still based in Melbourne, under the guiding hand of the Kirby family and Managing Director, Mr. Graham Burke, few are aware of the breadth or the diversity of Village Roadshow's entertainment and media assets.
Today, Village Roadshow operates core businesses in Theme Parks, Film and DVD Distribution, Cinema and Film Production. While creating strong and diverse earnings streams, these businesses are complementary, targeting a similar customer demographic and providing significant cross-promotional opportunities.
In film, Village Roadshow is a major movie producer and film and DVD distributor as well as operator of cinema exhibition circuits. In movie production, the Company is one of the most successful independent producers in Hollywood with successes including The Matrix trilogy, the Ocean's trilogy, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Happy Feet, Get Smart, I am Legend and Sherlock Holmes.
Village Roadshow owns and operates the popular theme parks on Queensland's Gold Coast: Warner Bros. Movie World, Sea World, Wet'n'Wild Water World, Australian Outback Spectacular and Paradise Country, as well as Sea World Resort & Water Park and Village Roadshow Studios. In addition it also has water parks in Hawaii, Phoenix and Las Vegas and is developing Wet'n'Wild Sydney.
