Fodor's Expert Review Isaac Theatre Royal

Christchurch Theater Fodor's Choice

The grand lady of Christchurch's theater scene, dating back to 1908, was fully restored in 2014. This opulent setting, complete with an intricate painted ceiling dome and marble staircase, hosts some of New Zealand's best touring shows including ballet and music. It is also home to a giant screen for the New Zealand International Film Festival, held every July. Get dressed up and enjoy the glamour of a bygone era in the comfort of today's plushest seating. There are stylish bars on every level for a drink before the show or during intermission.
