Built in 1921 by a well-known theatrical producer and comedian Harry Russell and privately owned and run, 'The New Arcadia' became the 'Arcadia Picture House' in the early 1930s still run by Mr Russell. In the late 1940s the Council purchased the building and converted it to a theatre and cinema as 'Doncaster Arts Centre' - one of the first such municipal facilities in the country.
Following major refurbishment in the 1970s the Doncaster Civic Theatre was born. Since then this 495 seat, single story proscenium auditorium has been the mainstay of arts activity in Doncaster, attracting over 70,000 visits a year to a varied and lively entertainments programme.
Currently funded and operated by Doncaster Council Directorate of Safer, Stronger & Sustainable Communities, Neighbourhoods, its programme is a mix of professional entertainment and artistic product alongside a thriving local amateur scene and an extremely successful annual Pantomime production.
