    A continuation from my earlier thread here: http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=43467

    Now, bear in mind this building opened in 1971, so it's not exactly the best looking of theatres, but it's now closed for the next 3 years whilst someone builds a library on to the side of it.

    It hosts an 824 seat main auditorium, and a 190 seat studio auditorium. And whereas there's not much history to the building itself, the company itself has been about since 1913. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birmingham_Repertory_Theatre

    There's more history on Centenary Square, and information on the Library construction in the thread link above.

    How it looked over a year ago before reconstruction work started.

    Stage left, towards the workshop. The roller shutter can be opened fully to allow sets and props to be wheeled in and out.

    "The Door" studio auditorium, fully stripped back. There's no stage in this one.

    Rear service tunnel.

    So again, not the most historic or exciting of locations, but seeing as it'll be drastically changing over the next few years I figured why not.​
