It always interests me when a theater has an entrance in the rear like the Alhambra. One wonders how patrons gained entrance to the front of the house. According to the information above, the original entrance on Leicester Square was even closed up and the rear entrance on Charing Cross Road became the only entrance. The La Fenice Opera House in Venice has a rear entrance, under the rear stage wall. From it lead two corridors, one on each side of the building. They pass under the wings of the stage and then alongside the auditorium and into the front foyer. Perhaps there was a similiar arrangement at the Alhambra.
