Criterion Theatre capacity

Criterion Theatre Seating Plan

The Criterion Theatre has a capacity of 581 seats. Section capacities are 365 Stalls , 151 Dress Circle and 65 Upper Circle. Use our interactive seating plan to view 1829 seat reviews and 1262 photos of views from seat.

The auditorium is fairly intimate and offers good views throughout, with all seats feeling close to the stage. Support pillars are dotted throughout the sections, which can cause obstructions in the Stalls and Dress Circle. Seats affected are sold as restricted view.

Good value seats

Because of the number of pillars in the venue, some seats are severely discounted, which can occasionally provide decent value for money. Alternatively, sitting in the front row of the Upper Circle is an excellent choice. Sit in seats towards the ends of the rows for a superb view of the stage on a hugely discounted price.

Premium seats

Premium seats are located in the front row of the Dress Circle in seats 12-21, with central Stalls seating also being excellent. These seats provide the best overall views of the stage and feel incredibly close to the action.

Sold as a restricted view because of a pillar, but the pillar is only visible in your peripheral vision. Because of this pillar you actually get a bit more legroom and it stops the person in seat 20 creeping into your space! You are on the far left... More

I really enjoy this pair of seats at the end of Row C, loads of legroom, comfy seats, and set apart from the row a little bit. The view is to the side and you do have a little pillar in your view and have to look around it at times but honestly it's not... More
