APOLLO VICTORIA THEATRE Guide


The Apollo Victoria Theatre was officially opened in 1930, with the idea of it being a state of the art cinema, and specifically being a venue for the burgeoning 'talking pictures' industry. Architect Ernest Walmsley Lewis designed the theatre in the popular Art Deco style of the time. Situated close to Victoria Station, the Apollo Victoria Theatre was originally called the New Victoria Cinema. After being closed down in 1975, the theatre reopened its doors again to become known by its current name. Singer Shirley Bassey was one of the stars appearing at the opening in Westminster.

The theatre has hosted some of the most iconic musicals of the 20th Century, including 'Fiddler on the Roof', 'Camelot' and, most famously of all, 'The Sound of Music'. Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Starlight Express' also made its debut here.

The Apollo Victoria Theatre is located at 17 Wilton Road, Westminster, London, SW1V 1LG.
