Theatre patrons in Hamilton long-starved of a decent performing arts centre can now look forward to a state-of-the-art theatre in the central city on the site of the old Embassy Theatre, right on the banks of the Waikato.

The 54-year old Founders Theatre closed just last year, but now if all goes to plan the new theatre, which will seat 1100 people will be opened in mid-2021 at a cost of just over $70 million.
