Design of the Theater.

Famous architect Frank Mat ham designed the building by using the corner location to a good effect. The Theatre was built with  £50000 which now equals  £2.5 million.

After world war 2 lots of changes happened around the building as a facade facing  bath street gives a mixed look of different arts. A two side sitting area as a pavilion was made near the facing bath street.

The theater was designed to provide a four stage sitting arrangement for the audience as a gallery upper round grand round and stalls. Matcham has made  such a great design for theater that it has less number of pillars especially near the sitting area so that it has a clear view from each and every part of the stage to everyone present in the theater. 1785 people can sit and enjoy the shows in the theater.

Bath street was extended near the western side because new offices were constructed like a change room for artists and a stage door for entering. The Kings theater Glasgow also underwent another changing period in 2008 when it was internally made new to restore the glory of the theater.
