Dominion TheatreHuge, but now slightly shabby, theatre which plays host to big, rocking musicals. The Dominion has a huge stage and hundreds of seats - on a packed night here noise levels are like those at a rock concert. Built in 1928, the venue was originally used as a cinema before turning to theatre and musicals. Later, Universal hired The Dominion for its movie 'Phantom of the Opera', and Charlie Chaplin's City Lights was shown here with synchronised music and sound effects. During the 1950s and 1960s, the Dominion played host to long runs of The Sound of Music and South Pacific. The massive rooftop statue of Freddie Mercury that greets you as youleave the Tottenham Court Road tube stop is a hint of the show that'sbeen playing here for the last few years.
