Grand Pier Pavilion Theatre

Located on the Grand Pier in the Somerset seaside town of Weston-super-Mare. The Grand Pier Pavilion Theatre was constructed in 1904 at the end of the pier, and seated 2,000 in orchestra stalls and balcony levels. It was designed by architects Mayoh & Haley in a Neo-Classical style. By 1909 it was screening Len’s Bioscope. Films continued to be a part of the progamme until around 1915. Other entertainments in the Grand Pier Pavilion Theatre included music hall, opera, plays and ballet.

The Grand Pier Pavilion Theatre was destroyed by a fire in 1930. It was rebuilt in 1933, and included an indoor fun fair. This too was destroyed when fire devastated the Grand Pier in 2008.

Following a 51 million Pound rebuilding, the Grand Pier was re-opened in October 2010. It is a Grade II Listed building.
