Apollo Victoria Theatre

The Apollo Victoria Theatre is on Wilton Road near Victoria Station.  It was designed as a "super-cinema" in 1930 with a striking art deco style. The cinema closed in 1975 and reopened six years later as a theatre with a concert by Shirley Bassey. It is one of the largest theatres in London with a seating capacity of 2,208.

For eighteen years the Apollo Victoria Theatre was home to Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical Starlight Express.  It had to be extensively redesigned to accommodate a multi-tier roller skating arena, but shortly before the show's 18th birthday Lloyd Webber made the decision to close the show to make way for his new production of Bombay Dreams which ran for two years before closing in 2004.

As filler productions for a couple of years  the Bee Gees musical Saturday Night Fever and Billy Joel’s Musical Movin’ Out were put into the Apollo Victoria until 2006 to make way for Broadway's Wicked European premiere.
