Eden Court Theatre and Cinema

Hosting everything from opera to film to theatre to live music, Eden Court also has a rich life as a space for performing arts classes (more than 60 run each week), offering lessons for dancers, actors and performers of all ages and abilities. The multi-arts venue was built in the mid 70s, making it the largest scale venue in the region, with additional performance space – another theatre, two cinema screens, two dance and drama studios and three floors of dressing rooms – completed during a renovation in 2007. The building also houses the Eden Court Restaurant, which offers a lunch, dinner and bar menu.
