The Royal Court Theatre contains two spaces - The Theatre Downstairs (Main House) and the Theatre Upstairs. The present building was built in 1888 as the New Court Theatre. It was used a cinema from 1935 to 1940. The building re-opened as a theatre in 1952. The English Stage Company took over the Royal Court in 1956.

In 1996, the interior was completely rebuilt, except for the façade and the auditorium, and reopened in February 2000.
