    Hamilton could soon have a distinctive new theatre in the heart of the city, with concepts being developed for a proposed new facility to replace the existing, earthquake-prone Founders Theatre.

    The building could be completed as soon as 2021 with the Jasmax design team developing ideas for approval by the Hamilton City Council. The proposed design would be a prominent feature on Hamilton’s main street, overlooking the river and include an art gallery and boutique hotel.

    The vision for the facility includes:

    • Formal auditorium with flexibility to suit different events.
    • Informal foyer and courtyard performance spaces.
    • Suggested maximum seating of 1100

    • Adjoining Art Gallery

    • Adjoining Boutique Hotel
