  • The theater has one room that can accommodate 997 patrons at a time, divided into two sections - the lower stalls and the elevated club and boxes.
  • The seating area is carefully designed on an inclined plain, while the stage lays flat on the ground.
  • Owing to the inclination of the floor, all seats offer a clear, unobstructed view of the performances.
  • While the lower stall area is preferred by many patrons owing to the ease of access, the elevated club area offers an equally compelling option at a reduced price.
  • The boxes to the side are great for patrons who prefer to have a more private experience.
