Adam Smith Theatre

Bennochy Rd, Kirkcaldy, Fife KY1 1ET, Scotland

Date Opened: 1973   Confidence Level  

The Adam Smith is located in Kirkcaldy, Scotland. The building was initially proposed as a tribute to political philosopher Adam Smith but only after the war did it begin to be used, by Perth Theatre, for producing and performing 'highly popular weekly plays in the halls, and strong links were forged with Kirkcaldy's Amateur Operatic Society and Gilbert and Sullivan Society. In 1972, to celebrate the 250th Anniversary of the birth of Adam Smith, the halls were renovated to create a cultural centre for the community at large. The building reopened in 1973 as the Adam Smith Centre [...] The new middle-scale auditorium, with a seating capacity of 475, was created and designed for use as a theatre, concert hall or cinema, and an enlarged stage, modern lighting system, air conditioning, modernized dressing rooms and immensely improved acoustics were added. [...] As well as receiving professional touring productions, more than a dozen amateur groups use the theatre each year, maintaining the building's close relationship with the local community.'
