Labia Theatre and Little Theatre
For nearly 30 years, the Labia Theatre has lured discerning moviegoers to enjoy classic films in an old-world ambience. Originally an Italian embassy ballroom, the building was opened by Princess Labia in May 1949 as a live performance theatre. It’s widely recognised as the oldest independent art-repertory cinema in South Africa.
