“small but perfectly formed”
Reviewed 21 June 2012

local theatre with a variety of shows etc - it would be impossible to have a bad seat in this theatre - if you do not have a head for heights then avoid the back half of the upstairs as its very steep - parking easy and convenient

“Theatre, cinema and cafe.”
Reviewed 15 June 2012

The Gala Theatre in Millennium Place in Durham City Centre is a hub of activity. Friends meet in the cafe for excellent home made snacks and cakes, toasties, paninies etc., it is all on a level so ideal access for pushchairs and wheelchairs. It is a very modern building with huge glass windows, very light and spacious. The Theatre offers drama, music etc. in its comfortable auditorium and on the lower floor of the building is a cinema.
It is worth a visit to look around, enjoy a coffee and check out what's on, the box office is as you come in the door so even if you hadn't planned in advance to see a show you can talk to the friendly staff and maybe able to get seats.
