Perth Entertainment Centre

Closed/Former Venue

Perth Entertainment Centre

The Perth Entertainment Centre was Western Australia's largest indoor arena, until its closure in August 2002. The building, which was owned by Channel 7, was subsequently demolished between 2011-2012. The venue opened on 27 December 1974 as the Channel 7 Edgley Entertainment Centre with the Australian debut of the second Disney on Parade show. The construction cost was $8.3 million.

The PEC had a seating capacity of 8,200 for sports events and was home to NBL team Perth Wildcats from 1990 until 2002. The Wildcats won the 1990, 1991, 1995 and 2000 NBL championships while the centre was their home court. It was also home to the Perth Breakers of the WNBL from 1988 to 1989 and hosted many concerts, theatrical extravaganzas and musicals. It was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest purpose built regular theatre (containing a proscenium arch) in the world.

The venue was ultimately replaced by the 14,500-seat RAC Arena, which opened in 2012, adjacent to where the old PEC once stood.
