Eventim Apollo was originally called the Hammersmith Apollo.
The venue opened on 28 March 1932 as the Gaumont Palace cinema, a huge cinema to capture the mass audiences going to the movies in the 1930’s, similar to the building of the Dominion Theatre and Apollo Victoria Theatre.
The Apollo Hammersmith was designed in the Art Deco style by theatre architect Robert Cromie, who also designed the Prince of Wales Theatre in the West End.
It originally had a massive 3,487 seats and the opening was Tom Walls “A Night Like This” and Helen Twelvetrees in “Bad Company”.
The venue was renamed the Hammersmith Odeon in 1962, and played host to many legendary acts including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Bob Marley. It has been a home to major concerts, comedy, musicals and performances ever since.
