Forgot to mention it originally had 1,000 seats and part of the description says the theatre was decorated in the style of a Moorish garden with miniature electric lights in the blue ceiling canopy giving the impression of a starry night sky.

The website is no longer operating and neither is the facebook entry for this theatre which could mean this theatre is currently closed.
