Situated on Francis Street in the heart of Dublin's southern city centre, The Tivoli Theatre was a replacement for an earlier Tivoli Theatre located on Burgh Quay, which had closed in May 1928.
Built to the designs of architect Vincent Kelly with seating provided for 700. The Tivoli Theatre opened as a cine/variety theatre on 21st December 1934. In the late-1930’s it converted to full-time cinema use and was re-named Tivoli Cinema.
 
The Tivoli Cinema was closed in September 1964. It was converted into a nightclub, and a shop, finally re-opening as a live theatre in 1987 and re-named Tivoli Theatre. The venue houses two flexible performance spaces: the Tivoli Theatre and the Tivoli Live.
 
Upstairs is an exclusive cinema styled theatre with a flexible stage area and an extensive lighting grid with a vast array of options for hanging. A unique and historic theatre, having played host to a long line of highly revered and well loved actors, playwrights, musicians and comedians from all over the globe.
