Small, traditional London theatre. Surprisingly roomy and comfortable seats for an old theatre, normally your knees are wedged up against the seat in front. Ornate plaster work as you would expect in traditional London theatres.

I was lucky enough to see Rain Man at the Apollo Theater. The oh so hot Josh Hartnett played the Tom Cruise character...my friends made fun of me for actually gasping when he took off his shirt. But even regardless of Josh's hotness this show was awesome!

As for the theater it's small and cozy. I believe we were also lucky enough to score the best seats in the house (row 0, seats 7-9). The...more
