Apollo Victoria Theatre Seating Plan
Here at Photoplan, we’re always seeking new opportunities to showcase the versatility of our exceptional 360 Virtual Tours. Recently, we were commissioned to create a series of 360 Virtual Tours featuring full-screen 360 functionality for the Victoria Apollo Theatre in London.
This immersive experience allows users to preview their seats in the theatre and the view they’ll have of the stage. The comprehensive 360 tour encompasses various angles, including the stage, lobby, ticket office, circle middle, circle right, and circle left. This interactive approach to ticket booking instils confidence in customers, ensuring they secure the best possible seats for their budget.
The Victoria Apollo Theatre is a historic venue located in London, England. It was initially built in 1930 as a cinema called the New Victoria Cinema, designed by the architect William Edward Trent. The cinema had a seating capacity of 2,760 and was one of the largest in the country at the time.
In 1976, the cinema was converted into a theatre and renamed the Apollo Victoria Theatre. The theatre underwent extensive renovations to transform it into a suitable venue for musicals, including adding a new stage, orchestra pit, and sound and lighting systems. The first production to be staged at the newly refurbished theatre was the musical “The Sound of Music”.
Over the years, the Apollo Victoria has hosted many successful and popular musicals, including “Starlight Express”, “The Witches of Eastwick”, and “Saturday Night Fever”. However, the theatre is perhaps best known for its long-running production of the hit musical “Wicked”, which has been playing at the venue since 2006.
In recent years, the theatre has continued to attract large audiences with productions such as “Billy Elliot the Musical” and “Mamma Mia!”. In 2020, however, the theatre was forced to close temporarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It reopened in October of that year with a production of “Hamilton”.
