News About This Theater


An Art Deco style theatre which opened in 1931 in Livingstone (Victoria Falls) and now the oldest in Zambia.

Seating arrangement: 250 downstairs and 160 upstairs.

There is a single screen which can be rolled up and secured out of view to reveal the original Art Deco style architecture surrounding the stage area.

It was closed as a cinema in 2003 and in 2008 and underwent a full restoration. It re-opened in 2010, but had closed by 2023.
