History

Dominion Theatre

The Dominion Theatre is relatively new compared to other West End theatres in London. It first opened in October 1929 having been built in 1928 stop it was originally built as a theatre but was converted in the early 1930s to allow the screening of movies.

The architects were the Milburns and created a distinctive portland stone fronts of the theatre. Nowadays the capacity is well over 2000 making it a very large theatre although it was even bigger before when the former upper circle was still working.

In the last few years, the theatre has been renovated a significant amount including work on the dressing room block, the main for a and the creation of a new studio and rehearsal room. Most recently in 2011 over £200,000 spent on connecting the theatre to a building used for theatre management offices.

The theatre is currently owned by the nadir land organisation who have put on notably, the huge smash hit musical We Will Rock You. The show has been a massive runaway success and has now been running for 10 years making it easily the longest running musical ever to play at the Dominion Theatre. Other notable productions include Grease, Swan Lake, Beauty and the Beast and Scrooge but of course Queen's We Will Rock You is what it is most famous for today.
