Official website:

From the Hackney Empire website:
Commissioned by Oswald Stoll, the prominent theatre impresario, Hackney Empire was built by renowned architect Frank Matcham in 1901. It was one of the first theatres to have electric lights, a built-in projector box, and central heating.
Now it is the only surviving purpose-built theatre in Hackney.
The Grade II listed building was restored in 2004 preserving historically significant details of its fa├žade and interior, and blending the grandeur of yesteryear with the technology of today.
