Rear Mezzanine guide
The Golden Theatre’s Rear Mezzanine is in the same balcony as the Front Mezzanine, with around 227 seats split across four blocks with aisles in between. The middle two blocks are larger than those at the side, and at its widest the entire section has around 33 seats across.
Prices are great for a bargain in the Rear Mezzanine, with the back couple of rows cheaper than anywhere else in the Golden Theatre. Across the section, rows are well-raked and the theater’s small size means patrons should have a good view of the stage from any seat. At the far sides, sightlines may be more angled, but this isn’t significant enough to affect the overall quality.
At this height, space in the Rear Mezzanine can become cramped, so anyone needing more legroom should aim for an aisle seat where possible. There are two transfer seats in the Rear Mezzanine. However, as they are located up three flights of stairs with an additional two steps up to each row, these may not be suitable for patrons with very limited mobility.
Left Rear MezzanineThe Left Rear Mezzanine contains some of the cheapest seats in the house, with five rows of seats from D to H. Seats begin at 127 on the inside, reaching up to 133 in the back two rows. The best seats are in row D, on the inside; however, there isn’t a huge difference in sightlines due to the size of the section, so good value seats for those on a budget are available in the back row. Legroom is best on the aisles because the Rear Mezzanine can become cramped.
Center Left Rear MezzanineThis section comprises eight rows from A to H, with odd-numbered seats in the range of 101 to 123. The back two rows are slightly longer, reaching 125. View from this section are very good for the price, with a clear, central overhead look at the stage that doesn’t feel too distant. The best seats are in the front rows A and B, which benefit from some good elevation over the Front Mezzanine. The back rows, although the most distant in the theater, represent good value seats. Legroom can be at a premium in the Rear Mezzanine, so taller patrons should opt for an aisle seat where possible.
Right Rear MezzanineThe Right Rear Mezzanine has a similar layout to the Left Rear Mezzanine, with five rows of seats from D to H at the side of the overall section. Each row has three seats, ranging from either 127 to 131 or 129 to 133 in the back. The best seats are on the inside of row D, although there is little difference in sightlines from any seat thanks to the section’s small size. Every seat has a relatively low price, with the cheapest in the house in rows G and H. In keeping with the rest of the Rear Mezzanine, space and pitch is narrow from these seats, so anyone wanting extra space should choose an aisle seat.
Center Right Rear MezzanineThis section has eight rows from A to H, with even-numbered seats numbering 102 to 124. The back rows are slightly longer, reaching 126 and 128. The best and more expensive seats in the Center Right Rear Mezzanine are in row A, which has a good lift above the Front Mezzanine. However, the entire section has very good sightlines helped by the Golden Theatre’s small auditorium, and patrons can find very good value seats a few rows back in rows F to H. Like the rest of the Rear Mezzanine, legroom and space is quite tight, so theatergoers may want to look for aisle seats as a first choice for extra room and comfort.
SeatPlan’s best views of the stageSeats in the center two sections, row A, are the best in the Rear Mezzanine. They’re well-elevated above the Front Mezzanine and don’t feel too distant from performances below.
Best legroom seatsAny seats on the aisle are much better for legroom than elsewhere in the Rear Mezzanine, which can be a bit cramped.
Tips• Seats can be narrow and cramped; opt for an aisle if you need extra legroom
• The best views will be found in the center two sections, rows A and B
• Most seats in the Rear Mezzanine are good value for a budget
• Restrooms are in the lower lounge - be quick at the intermission to beat the queue
PricingThe Golden Theatre Rear Mezzanine has the cheapest seats in the house, with prices at their lowest towards the back and sides. Patrons who want a bargain and don’t mind climbing up a lot of stairs should make the most of this section.
There is a bar located on this level which serves a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Prices can quickly add up, so consider setting a budget before you go.
Restrooms are located in the lower lounge, down five flights of stairs (47 steps). These serve the whole theater so may get busy quickly at the intermission.
