The Poly Theatre as the principal cultural entity is situated towards the southeastern portion of the Poly Cultural Plaza. Its smooth-oval form is a strong counterpoint to the more sober commercial centre, giving it an easy and powerful visual identity. It shapes and creates the urban plaza experience both to the east and in the central part of the Cultural Plaza. Its form helps to give the Cultural Plazas its sense of place.

It is a theatre complex that is resolutely contemporary. It’s glass and metal skin displays a clean, sober and open transparent space that symbolizes the purity of the performance arts. It does not seek the visual clutter but rather a bold, confident and transparent volume.

The Poly Theatre is a state of the art theatre complex that can accommodate 1500 spectators. Its staging equipment is one of the most complete, advance, and versatile. It can stage not only concerts and recitals, but also dramatic and dance performances, as well as opera productions. The advance audio-video, lighting and acoustical systems are coordinated to give results that are on and above internationally recognized standards.

The Poly Theatre’s amenities include a VIP lounge, world-class western style restaurant, cafés, gift shops, and boutiques to enhance the theatre experience.
