The Theatres Trust website says this about the theatre's interior, "The auditorium is fan-shaped with a rectangular proscenium opening set in an elliptically arched recess with curved jambs and a deeply coved head forming a sounding board. There are unseated ornamental loggias on the flank walls above the balcony and a recessed domed ceiling. Marc-Henri & Laverdet’s interiors throughout made extensive use of concealed lighting, silver plaster and coloured glass."

In 1934 the interior was altered, according to the history of the theatre on its website, under the supervision of Mary Wyndham Lewis, the wife of J B Priestley.
