  • Gaiety theatre is a heritage building built during the british rule. Even today many plays and exhibitions are hosted at this venue. Over time this building has been renovated but still the outer structure's view has been maintained as it was a century before.
  • Its heritage place, renovated for visitors. It's based on Gaiety Archeology. Theatre open for visitors on specific timings. Good things is the design of theater, wall reflect the sound eco, manual curtains, light windows and balcony..... Bollywood songs shooting done ......Mein nikla o gaddi lay Kya...
  • Love this place. A cute auditorium where even a murmur in stage audible everywhere in audience that too without a mic!!! An architectural marvelous
  • Multipurpose complex hosts variety of exhibitions and shows. Premises is a fine architectural gem well preserved with modern amenities. There used to a gaity theater hence the name
  • The theater is based on Gaiety Archeology and is thus considered as heritage place. It looks more like a opera theater where a murmur is audible in ever corner. You will really fall in love this place as it provides a peep into contemporary and modern fusion.
