Stage 6 pays homage to silent film director, Paulette McDonagh, and is named in her honour. In 1930 Paulette directed 'The Cheaters', an Australian silent film lensed by Jack Fletcher. She went on to work as an art director whilst making a number of self-funded films through the late 20s into the early 30s.
Stage 6 co-shares the same building complex as Stage 5, and provides productions with a small stage supported by a makeup room, greenroom, star rooms, cast areas, change rooms, toilets and showers.
Stage 6 was originally built to cater for television productions. Underneath the protective plywood floor is a flat vinyl floor suitable for camera pedestals.
The stage shares the rear storage, lockup and loading area with Stage 5.
