Rio Theatre

Top choice live performance in Commercial Drive

A huge public fundraising campaign in 2018 saved this beloved theater and cinema venue from possible redevelopment, proving just how important it's become in the cultural lives of locals. But alongside art-house movie screenings, there's a seriously eclectic array of entertainment here, from burlesque to stand-up and from live music to cult films. Check the calendar to see what's on during your visit.

Regular shows to look out for here include the Gentlemen Hecklers, who narrate big screen movies with their own naughty soundtrack, and Story Story Lie, a kind of gameshow where audiences guess who is telling the truth.
