The Kings Theatre Designed by prolific theatre architect W. G. R. Sprague and opened on this site in 1902, the Kings was one of the earliest theatres to have cantilevered balconies allowing a clear view of the stage from all 3,000 seats. Many famous actors played here. After use as a BBC television studio in the 1950s, it was demolished in 1963.
