The London Hippodrome 2003 - Click to continue featureThis Special Feature is on Frank Matcham's wonderful London Hippodrome. The Theatre has been in a very poor state for many years having been all but gutted in 1958 in order to turn it into The 'Talk Of The Town' and later, into various Night Clubs.

But this feature isn't about now, it's about the Theatre's past so click here to begin.

For Images of the entire building inside and out in 2003 with clickable plans and auditorium see the August 2003 Special Feature.

Also see Programme for July 30th 1900, just six months after the Theatre opened, here.

Also see Programme for May 2nd 1910 here.

Also see Charlie Gracie at the London Hippodrome here.

(Update: The building was eventually refurbished and reopened as a casino in July 2012, details here.)
