The Theatre at Solaire is Now Open

First Look: The Theatre at Solaire is Now Open


Solaire Resort and Casino, a USD $1 Billion-worth integrated resort complex, is not only a premiere leisure and gaming destination in the Philippines. As of November 26, 2014, when The Theatre at Solaire was formally launched, Solaire complex is now also a state-of-the-art performance venue for theatre plays, musicals, dance performances, and concert events.

Here’s a first-look photo essay of what to expect from the metro’s newest theater.
The Theatre at Solaire is located at the newly opened Sky Tower. It has a separate drop-off entrance from the hotel’s main building. Getting to the theatre’s foyer is a bit tricky because some of the elevators are not yet operational and not all of the staff is briefed yet on where to usher guests. But once you’re in this area, it should be easy for you to follow the signs that lead to the lobby.
