THEATRES, MUSIC HALLS AND CINEMAS
Theatres are very much the same in London as anywhere else; the
chief theatres ,music halls and cinemas are in the West End. If you
are staying in London for a few days, you’ll have no difficulty
whatever in finding somewhere to spend an enjoyable evening. You’ll
find opera, balley, comedy, drama, revue, musical comedy and variety.
Films are shown in the cinemas during the greatest part of the day.
The best seats at theatres are those in the stalls, the circle
and the upper circle. Then comes the pit, and the last of all the
gallery where the seats are cheapest. Boxes, of course, are the most
expensive. Most theatres and music halls have good orchestras with
You ought to make a point of going to the opera at least once
during the season if you can. There you can get the best of everything
— an exellent orchestras, famous conductors, celebated singers and well
dressed audience. But, of course, if you are not fond of music and
singing, won’t interest you.
At the West End theatres you can see most of the famous
English actors and actresses. As a rule, the plays are
magnificently staged — costumes, dresses, scenery, everything being
done of the most lavish scale. Choose a good play, and you’ll enjoy
yourself thoroughly from the moment the curtain goes up to the end of
the last act. Get your seats beforehand, either at the box-office of
theatre itself or at one of the agencies. When you go to a theatre,
you’ll probably want to seat as near to the stage as possible. But if
you are at the cinema, you may prefer to seat some distance from
the screen. In fact, I would say, the further away the better.
