Viewing: Photo | Street View

A stunning Art Deco style gem opened on 26th December 1937 with a seating capacity of 1,218 in orchestra and balcony levels. It was designed by architect Rolf Hagstrand, with interior decorations by Marcus Madrid Lorentsen. Located inside the lower ground floor of the Rival Hotel on the quiet residential island of Sodermalm in the south of Stockholm.

The hotel was bought by Benny from ABBA and lovingly restored including the cinema which held the World premiere of the film “Mama Mia” in 2008.

No film in this Theatre nowdays. Conferences, music and stand-up etc… Last film was a special event; the world premiere of “Mama Mia”. The four members of ABBA, Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Stellan SkarsgĂ„rd, Colin Firth, Amanda Seyfield was present (2008).
