The Piccadilly Picture Gardens was built and opened in 1926. The Civic Theatre opened on the corner of the site on 23rd March 1936 with Ralph Bellamy in “Air Hawks”. The venue referred as either the Civic Theatre and Gardens, or as the Civic Theatre and Piccadilly Gardens. The Civic Theatre had 932 seats and the Gardens had 1,004 seats. They were closed in 1962, and in 1969 the building was converted for use as the Civic Theatre Restaurant until the Civic Theatre Restaurant moved in December 1981 to a new venue(on Beaufort Street, just north of Bulwer Street(on the Easter side)).
