The Victoria Theatre has been purchased by the same company that owns the Enmore and other theatres. It is to be redeveloped.

I am inclined to say that the seating capacity as shown on the header must be wrong. The Victoria was a very large theatre, larger than the Regent Theatre at Islington, which had a capacity of 1600.

I also failed to say that if one looks up towards the top of the facade, the full date of construction is given – in stone.

My understanding is that the upper balcony only was removed, and some tinkering only with the huge dress circle/lounge. That does not constitute a rebuild of the whole building. It is the original 1890 structure. I went to check it out in January 1992 and it was all boarded up and sad.
