Apollo Theatre

The Apollo Theatre was designed by Lewin Sharp and opened in February 1901, making it the first Edwardian theatre in the West End.

The balcony is said to be the steepest in London, a design that was intended to improve the acoustics for musicals.

This theatre is currently owned by Max Weitzenhoffer and Nica Burns.

Apollo Victoria Theatre

The Apollo Victoria Theatre was designed by Ernest Wamsley Lewis with William E Trent and opened in October 1930 as the New Victoria Cinema.

This Art Deco building was carefully designed to create an overall streamlined effect with vertical banding originally holding neon lighting. Built on a rectangular site, it has two identical facades, one on Vauxhall Bridge Road and the other on Wilton Road.

The cinema closed in 1975 and was converted to a theatre, reopening for live entertainment in 1981 under it's present name. The theatre underwent extensive refurbishment in 2002 when the original interior was restored to its former glory.

The theatre is currently owned by Clear Channel Entertainment.
