Queen's Theatre

Located in Barnstaple, Devon. The Albert Hall (next to the Market Hall) was opened as a cinema around 1931. It was equipped with a British Thomson-Houston(BTH) sound system. It was closed as a cinema around 1939.

Later re-named Queen’s Hall, it was converted into live theatre use as the Queen’s Theatre in 1952. It has seating for 688 in stalls and circle levels. There are six dressing rooms to accommodate 90 persons.

In 1993 it was extensively refurbished by architectural firm Burrell, Foley & Fischer.

It was closed suddenly on 23rd January 2017 due to lack of funding. The operating company also closed the Landmark Theatre, Ilfracombe on the same day. Both theatres had reopened by June 2023.
