When you pass this theatre on the outside you have no idea what a gem awaits inside. This is a theatre from the 1920s lovingly restored. The ceilings are amazing as are the painted walls. There was a Jive Festival when we visited.

This was part of our food tour in between our food stops . It is a refurbed building worth looking at inside. A lot of money has been put in to improve the condition. It is inspired by the French opera house
