“Wheelchair access proved awkward”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

We were assured that the theatre was easy access and this is true but the position of the wheelchair unfortunately blocks the view for others. I felt quite awkward about it. There are adequate easy access toilets. The play was excellent and this would have been 5 stars for the play alone. However the evening was spoilt because I was aware that I was 'in the way'.

“Great amateur shows”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

Have enjoyed many shows here, particularly those by the Bijou Theatre Theatre Productions, Paignton Operatic & Dramatic Society and Paignton Pantomime Productions, all great amateur groups of a high standard which it's great to support.. Also some good professional shows, including tribute bands. Refurbished a few years ago and quiet comfortable now with a cosy bar.
