Our top floor Theatre has 132 seats and is fitted with a large screen and a high definition digital projector with 3D capability and 5.1 surround sound.  This was the circle of the Victoria theatre before it became a separate auditorium in the 1980s.  The raked seating could suit presentations and intimate live shows.   The very shallow stage is  10m wide, with a curved front, and only just over one metre deep at the sides and 1.8m deep in the centre with extra floor space in front of the stage.  This auditorium has no wheelchair access and patrons need to be able to use the staircase access.
