His Majesty's Theatre vestibule
The vestibule of His Majesty's Theatre, with the Box Office to right of the centre. This fine provincial theatre was opened on 3rd December 1906 to a design by Frank Matcham. By 1927, the fortunes of the theatre were at a low ebb. In an effort to publicise the building nationally, a pictorial article appeared in a glossy weekly entitled "A Model Theatre". The vestibule's black and white marbled floor provides a striking entrance, as does the polished wood surrounds. The ceiling itself consisted of a series of pre-fabricated panels. In the centre is the curtained doorway, taking the visitor into the "posh" seats.
