St James Theatre

Location: 
Fringe/Off West End
Capacity: 
312

When St. James Theatre opens in September 2012, it is the first newly built theatre complex in London in 30 years. It is on the site of the former Westminster Theatre. It features a 312 seat theatre and a 100 seat studio theatre, and a brasserie and lobby bar offering food, wines and cocktails. St James Theatre also incorporates a full broadcast TV facility.

Robert Mackintosh, Joint CEO & Creative Director, always felt London Theatre distinctly lacked smaller, off-Broadway type theatres seating less than 500 people to develop shows prior to moving to the West End. When the opportunity came up to develop a smaller theatre on the site of 12 Palace Street, Robert says he was immediately interested as it sounded like a great opportunity particularly as it offered the possibility of developing it from scratch.
