THE Picture Ipswich website has captured the opening of the historical Incinerator Theatre, all the way back in 1936.

The theatre was designed by Walter Burley Griffin - the architect and planner of Canberra - along with renowned Ipswich architect George Brockwell Gill.

The building is the only surviving piece of Burley Griffin's work in Queensland.

Originally designed to dispose of Ipswich's rubbish, eventually the facility could no longer keep up with population growth.

It was preserved as the home of the Ipswich Little Theatre, which has been in operation since 1946.
