Waikato's new theatre unveiled: Founders Theatre replacement revealed


24 August 2017

Waikato people can now get their first look at the new theatre.

The proposed venue has been designed for the former Hamilton Hotel site in Victoria Street. It would also house an art gallery and possibly a boutique hotel overlooking the river.

The $73 million facility would seat around 1100 people, a similar number to the now-defunct Founders Theatre, but also have less formal performance spaces.
