Don’t be deceived by the exterior; inside the 1970’s concrete box above the Kings Mall shopping centre is a beautiful gilt and velvet Victorian theatre. It was built in 1895, as an opera house, a little bit further down the street. Having fallen on hard times, it was listed for demolition in 1966 to make way for a shopping and housing development. But after a public outcry, it was decided that the theatre should be preserved. It was carefully dismantled and rebuilt in its present position. Today, it presents 1000 performances a year – a variety of comedy, music and plays. It takes pride in selecting an eclectic mix of original productions.
The building is air conditioned and has a licensed bar and a garden roof terrace. There is also a café and pizzeria serving Italian cuisine. There are 2 performance spaces; it seats 550 in the Main House and 110 in the Studio.
For disabled visitors, there are lifts to all levels of the building and accessible toilets on every floor. There are 3 spaces for wheelchair users in the Stalls of the Main House. Two wheelchairs can be accommodated in the Studio. The auditoriums have Sennheiser infra-red audio enhancement systems and they present regular open-captioned performances.
The nearest tube station is Hammersmith (150m). Parking is available adjacent to the theatre, in Kings Mall on Glenthorne Road.
