The Dominion Theatre opened on 3 Oct. 1929. The theatre is located on the site of the former Horse Shoe Brewery, site of the 1814 London Beer Flood.

The theatre screened the premiere of Charlie Chaplin’s film, City Lights (with Chaplin himself attending). During its history, the Dominion Theatre hosted movies such as South Pacific and The Sound of Music, whilst interspersed with live performances, most famously the Judy Garland Show. In the 1980s, music stars played at the Dominion Theatre, including Dolly Parton, Duran Duran, Bon Jovi, David Bowie and U2.

In the early 1990s, plans were set to convert the theatre into a car park, but this was not followed through. Now, the Dominion Theatre is home to large musicals, including Grease, a 12-year run of We Will Rock You, and The Prince of Egypt.

Dominion Theatre Seating Information

The auditorium has two levels – the Stalls and Circle. It is a very large space and offers excellent views of the stage wherever you sit.

In the Stalls, the rake of the seating is very good, offering excellent views from most seats and the legroom is excellent too.

In the Circle, the seats are strongly raked which offers a great view.
