About the Dominion Theatre
For the first few years the venue struggled to survive. Opened in 1929, it was transformed into a cinema in 1933. Rescued from demolition in 1991, these days the Dominion Theatre is a popular venue for big productions. It’s double-haunted too, by a giggling child and a brewery worker, so watch out! Past shows at the Dominion Theatre include The Bodyguard, Bat Out Of Hell, An American In Paris, and The Prince of Egypt.
