I would have liked to have seen a performance inside. The exterior architecture is a dramatic art deco style. Nice place to stroll after dinner.

It's a big building right by the harbor and the main stretch of the town. The design of the building is fairly interesting and it's not to see the arts so far north and in such a small town.

Gorgeous Theatre located in downtown Reykjavik. Local A List actors performing in a wide array of Season Theatre offerings. Cheaper than a Broadway show. Authentic Theatre/Arts experience.

I always make it a point to see at least one production at the National Theatre (Þjóðleikhúsið) whenever I'm in Iceland. Excellent actors (many of whom are regulars in Hollywood productions), fantastic set designs, and superlative direction. Two caveats: All the plays are in Icelandic...More

Was offered tickets to see "In the heart of Robin Hood" by Vesturport group (amazing play.. must see!) and I have to say that Þjóðleikhúsið is a forgotten treasure. The house is in old "art deco" style located downtown central and when walking in you...More

Located next to the national center for cultural heritage, the theater building stands out with its gray color and unique design. Tickets are available for purchase here (or online). Unfortunately, no plays were showing during our stay in Reykjavik and no guided tours were available...More

We saw Les Miserables in this modern "art deco" theatre and the accoustics were great. The stage production was professional and the singing was fantastic. The seats in the small theatre were elevated affording everyone a great view and no one was too far from...More
