An unexpected delight!
Jun 2019 • Couples
This art-deco building is an unexpected sight to see along the main street of this largely historic little town, with many of its beautiful buildings dating back to the beginning of last century. As you regard the 50's style exterior, you get a hint of what is to come, as the retro style interior is truly a work of art in itself... it's like stepping back in time!
The citizens of Prince Albert are indeed fortunate in having a theatre of this calibre and by the looks of the website, displaying a varied programme of films and live performances, it is very active in promoting the cultural arts. BRAVO!

What a gem. We attend all the shows and go to the cinema showings whenever we are in Prince Albert. Very comfortable raked seating and some great shows. Lovely art deco style, bar, popcorn,sweeties etc. Great loos and disabled access. Keep it up, it's a great facility and really adds character to this lovely town.

A wow in the outback

What a fantastic immaculate gem, right in the centre of Prince Albert. We had been told about "the theatre" but were completely bowled over when we saw it. The prestine art deco decor and totally authentic renovation of this ex car showroom is something to behold. The interior takes you back in time to the art deco age and the glitz and glamour of those days. We saw two movies during the week and then a live show on new years eve which was well worth paying the extra buck for. This theatre was well worth the visit and an absolute must for any visitor to Prince Albert. Loved it!

Absolutely the rudest person in town working there.

Looks nice but the man working there is completely void of personality and extremely rude. This place won’t see me again!

What an amazing gem in this little Karoo town!
On Saturday when we were there they had an old movie showing, but what amazed me is that they allowed the local underprivileged children come and watch!

Best Reason to visit Prince Albert
Dec 2016 • Couples
When planning your trip to Prince Albert make sure it coincides with a life show at this theater. The high finishes if the theater throughout is something to be seen. This is the place to pick up the local spirit while you enjoy a drink at the champagne bar. A real jewel in the Karoo where on can dress up for the occasion.

Fantastic up-to-date art deco art centre
Sep 2016 • Friends
This was a 'bucket list' experience for us. We were only in the town for two nights and we were fortunate that the cinema club was showing a film, but it was the theatre not the film that was so amazing - we were 'open-mouthed' at the quality of the design,build and decor. Whisked back to the twenties in great style. Looking forward to a return visit!
