Connaught Theatre in Worthing

Connaught Theatre , Worthing

The Connaught Theatre was built in 1914, but was originally called the Picturedrome. For 20 years it was an early cinema, until 1935 when the Worthing Repertory Company outgrew its own premises and came in to the venue, bringing with it the name Connaught Theatre.

The original Connaught Theatre was what is now known as the Connaught 2-Screen Cinema. The company added a stage and fly tower, and the venue began to trade as a theatre. In 1987 projection facilities were added and a full cinema programme now runs alongside the live shows.
