The magnificent Dominion Theatre was constructed from the year 1928 to 1929 on the previous site of brewery and funfair. W and T R Milburn designed the theatre. During the opening years, theatre didnít fare well due to economic depression. In the year 1933, part of Gaumont-British cinema chain purchased the theatre to run some of the most popular movies of era. This was quite affordable as well as novel entertainment form and successfully managed to fill 3000 seats. This saved the Art Deco building of the theatre to get completely closed.
Theatre restarted its live performances from the year 1957, as cinema was no more a novel form of entertainment. The Judy Garland Show went on becoming a huge success. Recent year witnessed some great shows with 1983 live pop show by Dolly Parton along with some other spectacular productions such as Grease and Beauty and the Beast.
