For years creative types lamented the lack of commercial 500 or 350 seat venues. One of those people was Aleksandar Vass, himself an actor, writer and producer who also moonlights as a successful businessman with interests in over 28 countries around the world.
Hearing the old George Cinemas were being redeveloped, he moved quickly to secure the site and began urgent renovations to allow the three spaces to live again with enhanced capabilities. The Alex Theatre now boasts two theatres (500 seats and 292 seats) and a studio and rehearsal space.
Audiences are showing up to see everything from plays to cabaret, dance to musicals. If you love your theatre Alex Theatre is a must at the Paris end of Fitzroy Street.
