    A great little theatre, been there a few times for different events.
    Always been quality and had lots of fun.
    Out side of building has had a total overhaul,
    I must go again and see if the inside has changed.

    Based in one of Chorley's original cinemas, this small theatre puts on several amateur plays over the year as well as hosting pantomimes and Chorley's film society.
    We have enjoyed a few of their productions, which even though all by amateurs are good quality productions. They have a dedicated core of people from all walks of life who devote a gooddeal of time to these productions, and they just get better year after year.
    They also have a younger section for children to get involved in their own productions and is very popular and oversubscribed, i think we paid £6 subs for the year for my daughter.
    There is also a bar for dirinks during intervals.
    Just go along, you can't miss it as it is a good opportunity for an entertaining evening. Tickets can be found at Malacolms music land on Chapel Street.

    First to Review

    You can always be assured of a good night out here. It has a very friendly feel, the staff are always helpfull and go out of their way to make sure you have a good time.
    They regularly features shows by up and coming and well known comedians as well as more well known ones such as Richard Herring and Jenny Eclair.
    Of course there are also a solid program of plays and other theatrical events.
    The reputation of CADOS and their home in this theatre is growing.

History

Established in 1910.

The building was the town's first electric cinema, and went on to be the only one that offered 3-D films in the 1950s. After if closed, it was taken over by the local amateur dramatics group CADOS, who still own and operate it today and put on at least 6 full productions per year.

The building seats 236 and is also home to Chorley Youth Theatre and Chorley Film Society, who regularly show movies on the big screen.
