The Sydney Coliseum draws onlookers and patrons into the grandeur and drama of the theatre experience.

Featuring striking, opulent architecture, the 2,000-seat multimode theatre is made up of three foyers, seven bars and a bespoke chandelier that is sure to leave a lasting impression.

This unique and exciting theatre, located within the buzzing dining, accommodation and entertainment precinct of West HQ, creates a new venue for arts, culture and entertainment for the region.
