At 133-years old The Princess Theatre reigns as Queensland’s oldest standing theatre. The heritage-listed building, which opened in 1888, has over the years housed a picture theatre, a rag merchant, a secondhand dealer, a paper wholesaler, an engineering firm, and most recently, a church.

The reopening of this iconic destination was helmed by The Tivoli owners, brothers Steve Sleswick and Dave Sleswick, alongside prominent Brisbane businessman Steve Wilson.

Following meticulous and faithful restorations, The Princess reopened to the public in 2021 and now boasts a state-of-the-art performance auditorium designed for a standing capacity of 900 and a seated theatre capacity of 500. It also features four bars, a public cafe, private event spaces, a rehearsal room and an outdoor courtyard.
