The Royalty Theatre, now known as the Peacock Theatre, has been a major part of London's West End since 1960. Initially showing only London plays, it was later converted into a cinema and screened films such as My Fair Lady. During the 1980s, it served as a television studio and hosted the This Is Your Life series. The theatre now functions as both a theatre space and a lecture hall.
