There is additional historical information about this theatre on this webpage.

As noted, Prince’s Theatre was located on top of the Star Music Hall/Palace Theatre, making it a part of the possibly first stacked set of theatres in the United Kingdom. The design resembles in some respects Loew’s Mall Theaters opened in 1914 in Cleveland, Ohio USA.

The main entrance on Little Horton Lane(shown above) was for the more expensive seats and involved a long walk down a corridor behind the terrace of houses on the right of the photo. The auditorium and stage building was on Manchester Road, exactly opposite the old Odeon. For cheaper seats at the Prince’s, patrons walked the pavement in front of the terrace houses to the auditorium. The Prince’s was, latterly, a repertory theatre with Harry Hanson’s Court Players; Pat Phoenix was a ‘Player’ before going on to be Elsie Tanner in Coronation Street.
