The Opera House was opened on 10th August 1877 with a production of “The Lady of Lyons”. Seating was provided in orchestra stalls, balcony and gallery levels, plus four private boxes. The proscenium was 24 feet wide, the stage 20 feet deep and there were seven dressing rooms.
By 1934, it was operating as a cine-variety theatre, having been equipped with an RCA sound system. The Opera House suffered a massive fire on 8th March 1940 which began at the rear of the building soon after the audience had departed. All that remained was the outer walls, which were soon demolished.
The site has never been built on, and today the Carlisle Street Car Park operates from the plot of land.
