Initially the Keswick Theatre was opened as a movie house and theatre where famous artists of the 30s and 40s, such as Paul Robeson and Stephin’ Fetchit performed. In the year 1955, the theatre was closed for a while for renovations, after which when it was reopened it was declared to be a full cinemascope movie house. After reopening the cinema was known to show high-budget hits of the 50s and the 60s. However, in the year 1980, “Glenside Landmarks Society” protested for its demolition as a cinema and reopening it in the essence of its creation i.e. to be the hub for performing arts. Hence, in the following year, it was opened to a full-house show where theatrical legends such Fred Waring performed. It ran successfully for the next four years, but had to be closed down as the non-profit institution “Glenside Landmarks Society” could no longer bear the expenses.
Being reopened under private control in the year 1988, the theatre was able to sustain successfully over the years as renovations were under work and the theatre grew in terms of fame and popularity. If you wish to visit the theatre for a show that you have been looking forward to, it is advised that you get Keswick Theatre tickets as soon as possible.
