What You Need To Know About The Print Room:
The Print Room officially opened in 2010, but moved to its current location in the old Coronet Cinema in 2014. The venue hosts a mixture of drama, dance, poetry and concerts, plus events that cross over between these disciplines. Its programme to date has included revivals of forgotten Tennessee Williams works, dance choreographed by Russell Maliphant and Out of Blixen starring acclaimed actor Katherine Hunter.
The Coronet Cinema is a Grade II listed building built in 1898 and designed by W. G. R. Sprague, the famous architect behind numerous West End theatres. Interestingly, Sprague also created the Coronet as a theatre, but it was unsuccessful commercially and turned into a cinema in 1923. The Print Room returns the building to its original use as a venue for live performance.
The Print Room has two auditoria: a 180-seat main auditorium and a 100-seat studio space.
The current Artistic Director is Anda Winters.
