Chamber Theatre

The building of the Chamber Theatre at Grodzka Street was built in 1850. The place was known as “U Wicherta” and was one of the city's most popular cultural and entertainment spots. It featured a restaurant with a bowling alley and a garden, a wine bar, a beer hall, a summer garden, a restaurant called “Alt-Bromberg” and a banquet and theatre hall for 600 people. Restaurant, entertainment, and theatre activities, such as balls, theatre performances, concerts, revue, and cabaret shows were held here until the end of World War II.

The place was adapted as a replacement stage theatre performances after the war (until the new Polish Theatre was built in 1949). After the reconstruction, the new building was called the Chamber Theatre. The stage was active from 1962 to 1988 and—among others—experimented with new and avant-garde arts. Eventually, it was closed due to the inability to meet fire safety regulations.

The stage re-opened again in 2022 after the city restored it completely. A 4-storey building was built with a built-up area of over 1,000 m2. It included a theatre hall with a stage of 226 m2 and an auditorium for 234 people, the lobby, rehearsal room, and a multipurpose room for 50 people. The theatre is equipped with various amenities, including a revolving stage, a trapdoor, poles with winches, a stage portal, a stage manager system, and the most advanced sound and stage lighting equipment.
