The National Theatre of Rhodes

The National Theater of Rhodes is situated at the central, Town Hall square of the town of Rhodes and is an impressive sample of the so-called “fascist” architectural style, with influence of the so-called “international style.” It is perhaps the most important sample in Greece of the use “cannabic technology” (finta pietra), and of glass bricks. The performance hall is imposing, both in height and in size. There is also a huge balcony, luxurious theater boxes and a very nice foyer.

The theater was constructed in 1937, during the Italian domination of the island and initially it was called “Teatro Puccini”, in honor of the great Italian composer. The name of the architect is unknown. When built, it was a nice modern theater, which knew times of glory, as it has housed even Italian operas. After the World War II, it kept working as a theater and later on it was transformed in cinema.
