Leith Theatre

The theatre complex was a gift from the people of Edinburgh to the people of Leith following the decision to incorporate the Burgh of Leith into Edinburgh. It opened in 1932 and over the years Leith Theatre hosted performances by AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, Kraftwerk and shows that were part of the Edinburgh International Festival. Leith Theatre was closed in 1988 and fell into a state of disrepair and neglect.

In 2017 the venue reopened its doors to host Hidden Door Festival. The Leith Theatre Trust are working to restore the space into a lively creative hub for Leith. Their aim is to refurbish the main auditorium and reopen it to provide a series of spaces which can host a wide range of events. The campaign has backing from Rod Stewart, the Proclaimers and Ewen Bremner.
