The Victory Theatre Johannesburg is a perfect example of the city's vibrant arts scene.
Rich in history and tradition
Built in the early 19th century, the Victory Theater was originally known at the Grove Kinema, before being renamed in honor of the Allied Victory in World War II. Previously used for screening movies, the theater has undergone a transformation and is now a venue for live productions.
After an extensive renovation in 2007, the Victory Theater was restored to its former glory. The venue serves as a showcase for plays and concerts produced by some of South Africa's biggest talent. Performances at the theater range from local improvisation nights to internationally acclaimed shows, such as UMOJA: The Spirit of Togetherness – a proud South African performance, which tells the story of the country and its people through indigenous music.
