The C.U.B. Malthouse was donated to the Playbox theater company in 1986 by Carlton United Breweries. It consists of two theatres - the Merlyn and the Beckett. Neither is large, with the Merlyn holding 500 and the Beckett 200. The connection to the Playbox means there is a strong accent on Australian theatre, but music, dance and events associated with Melbourne's festivals are held here, too. There is a coffee shop open from breakfast until after the shows. Call for prices of individual performances.
