About Apollo Victoria
Opened as a Cinema in 1930 the now 'Apollo Victoria' is a 2,328 capacity theatrical venue brimming with art deco design. In the era where talking pictures were influencing the creation of 'super' cinemas, Provincial Cinematograph Theatres (PCT) invited Ernest Walmsley Lewis to submit plans to build such a cinema a stone’s throw away from Victoria Station. It was one of Britain’s first cinemas to be listed for its architectural significance and is now a Grade II* listed building. On 15th October 1930 the New Victoria opened with the film Old English and a stage show called Hoop-La, and years of highs and lows followed. The Apollo Victoria has now been home to Wicked: The Musical for over 10 years.
