Imperial Theatre (Japan)
The Imperial Theatre (帝国劇場, Teikoku Gekijō), often referred to simply as the Teigeki (帝劇), and previously the Imperial Garden Theater, is a Japanese theater located in Marunouchi, Chiyoda, Tokyo, Japan operated by Toho. Opened in 1911 as the first Western-style theater in Japan, it stages a varied program of musicals and operas. The original structure was rebuilt in 1966 as Tōhō's "flagship" theater, opening with the premiere of Scaretto, a local adaptation of Gone With the Wind, which drew 380,000 attendees over the course of the theater's first five months of operation.
