Lonely Planet review
It’s a unique experience staying backstage at this 1854 theatre. The two suites are compact, but beautifully decorated with period furniture and cinema memorabilia, and are literally right behind the velvet curtain – you can clearly hear any performances, though the rate includes admission to all movies screened during your stay. The suites can be rented together for $240 (sleeping four) plus you get the ‘Harry Potter’ single (under the stairs) free.
