Futurist Theatre in Scarborough

Futurist Theatre, Scarborough

The Futurist Theatre is a theatre and cinema in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England. It is located on Foreshore Road, on the sea front of the South Bay. The Futurist was built as a cinema in 1921. It remained in this role until 1958 when the stage was extended to allow live performances at the venue. Further extensions to the stage allowed the popular The Black and White Minstrel Show to perform there many times when it was owned (between 1966 and 1974) by the producer of the stage version, Robert Luff.[1][2] The extension to the stage meant the closure of the adjacent Arcadia theatre which became a lounge.
