This quaint 78-seater theatre located in Kalk Bay, Cape Town, was actually originally an old Dutch Reformed Church. It was built in 1876 and is a heritage protected building. Going there to shoot for Skybok was super – we got great weather and shooting their video didn’t take too long. I personally love the red interior and the upstairs where patrons can eat dinner before the show. I think it’s a super idea – dinner and a show at the same venue. The theatre is constantly showing new and popular theatre pieces….and the idea is that patrons arrive from 6:30pm and, after reserving their theatre seats, are directed upstairs to the restaurant. There is a set menu and the food is mainly served before the show but drinks and dessert are served after the performance. Patrons make their way down to the theatre when the show is due to start. Drinks may be taken into the theatre but there is no service in the theatre during the show. We loved the owners – very friendly and professional people. Here is their website if you’re interested in finding out more about the theatre or the shows which are currently showing there (you will also see Skybok’s logo featured on the website, directing visitors to check out their video profile, which is really nice!) — THE KALK BAY THEATRE
