Description The Jubilee Theatre, is a grade II listed building theatre. It opened in 1899 in St Nicholas Hospital, Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne, England.HistoryThe theatre was opened on 30 May 1900 Victorian with a beautiful proscenium arch of Doulton tiles by W.J. Neatby, depicting two pre-Raphaelite figures which face east and west, as the theatre faces true north and south. It was built for staff and patients of the Hospital.Originally, the theatre had a sprung dance floor made from maple and a full sized orchestra pit, and was used for both shows and dances. The orchestra pit is currently not in use, but could be if part of the front of the stage was removed, as the stage was recently extended covering the orchestra pit.So that films could be shown in the theatre a projection room was added to the back of the building in 1920 housing at least two movie projectors. They remain, but are not in use, currently sealed off. Together with the projection room there was a cinema screen which could be lowered in front of the proscenium.
