The Apollo Victoria Theatre boasts exquisite architecture, which was originally designed by architect Lewis and William Edward Trent in 1929 for Provincial Cinematograph Theatres. Its nautical themed interior with an art decor design and immense seating capacity render it particularly unique.
When it opened in 1930, The Apollo Victoria Theatre was originally a cinema and a variety theatre and its opening film was Old English, starring George Aril and based on the play by John Galsworthy.
In 1939, the Apollo Victoria Theatre was one of three London theatres to present a live relay of the Epsom Derby. During world war 2, the theatre closed from 1940-41 but the building somehow managed to survive the Blitz. After closing for 5 years from 1976, it then reopened as rock music venue and since 1981, it has been a popular theatre venue and an important elbelm in the West End theatre district. The theatre is now owned and operated by the Ambassador Theatre Group.
