Richmond Theatre, situated on Richmond Green, was built in 1899 and was designed by the leading architect of the day, Frank Matcham. It is a classic example of his work.

It is very popular with film makers and has doubled for many different theatres in the past. It has also played a part in TV dramas Mr Selfridge, Call the Midwife, Downton Abbey, Toast of London and New Tricks. Feature films include Muppets the Movie, Harry Hill the Movie, and Evita.

Nicholas Cage and Diane Kruger starring as Benjamin Gates and Abigail Chase must follow a clue to prove his ancestor’s innocence in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

With over 100 extras dressed in period dress, Richmond Theatre doubled as Ford’s Theatre.

Filmed at two locations in Richmond, Finding Neverland tells the story of J M Barrie’s friendship with a family who inspired him to create Peter Pan.

Richmond Theatre doubled for the Duke of York’s Theatre in the movie.

Director Mike Leigh spent a week in Richmond filming scenes for Topsy Turvy where Richmond Theatre doubled as the Savoy Theatre. The story centres about a theatrical group inspired to write the masterpiece ‘The Mikado’.
