Interesting to read on the theatre website that construction began in 1930 but the depression delayed the completion of the building until 1934.It opened 23 August and was designed by local architect,Dixon Rapp.I wonder if he is related to George and Cornelius.

atmos commented about Playhouse Theatre on Jul 20, 2005 at 10:55 pm

Thanks john martin.I have just discovered the website.The original information was off a website I found but have since lost it.The Playhouse complex consists of an Opera Theatre(1224 seats)Drama Theatre(474 seats)and Loft(136 seats).The Prince’s Theatre opened in July 1926.
The Opera Theatre has a starry sky,so could it be described as an atmospheric.

atmos commented about Playhouse Theatre on Jul 18, 2005 at 8:24 pm

Sorry but the Playhouse and the Princess were different theatres and it is not a multiplex,the largest theatre is used for opera,although the venue does host the Durban Film Festival.I will do some more research.
