About Stephen Joseph Theatre
The Stephen Joseph Theatre (SJT) is a cultural icon of the Yorkshire region, providing accessible, high-quality theatre for audiences worldwide since 1955. Over 100,000 people visit the SJT each year and many more experience its work on tour in the UK and abroad.
The SJT is Scarborough’s independent theatre and cinema. The building is a beautifully restored 1930s Odeon cinema, home to the famous theatre-in-the-round which was the first of its kind in the world.
The theatre offers a unique, intimate experience in the renowned theatre-in-the-round as well as the more traditional end-on McCarthy theatre and cinema. It hosts an extensive programme of first-class drama, music, films, comedy and live streaming.
It’s open from Monday to Saturday and hosts the Eat Me restaurant onsite.
