Who we are
The Atterbury Theatre is a superb auditorium style theatre, and at the same time it is optimally ‘tuned’ in terms of spatial acoustical properties. The theatre is situated on the corner of Lynnwood Road and Daventry Street in the east of Pretoria as part of the Lynnwood Bridge Retail development.
The theatre was opened on May 18, 2011 with the musical “Stuur Groete aan Mannetjies Roux”. All 24 performances were sold out, and that was just the beginning.
From there, it was smooth sailing. More than 400 shows were presented in the first two years and the theatre is still used night after night for a variety of events.
There is also ‘n well-equipped cash bar in the foyer, where guests can enjoy a drink before a show or during interval. The foyer and bar area walks out onto a balcony with a view over one of the most beautiful parts of Pretoria, and flows into the reception area of Odyssey Records.
The curved auditorium stands out above the adjacent retail development, thus creating a distinctive landmark in the east of Pretoria. On the ground level, the theatre walks out on the piazza, where it forms part of the four separate retail buildings.
An acoustic design model has determined the shape, heights, volumes and surface finishes of the auditorium, which was designed by an acoustic engineer.
