Let us take you behind the curtain and tell our story from the beginning in 1918 to present day.

Opera Comique:
Stortingsgata 16 open as the Opera Comique in 1918. Before that, it was Café Cardinal, but that was torn down to build the Opera Comique. Just three years later, it changed from an opera to a large revue theater.

Oslo Kinomatografer:
In 1928, Oslo Kinomatografer took over the premises, only to suffer a fire three years later. After the tragedy, the building was reconstructed in the Nordic Neo-Renaissance style. Renowned architect Henry Fearnley Coll, in partnership with Danish architect Hack Kampmann, used their expertise to redesign.

Die Deutches Theater:
Throughout the German occupation of Norway, this venue served as the headquarters for Nazi propaganda, operating under the name Die Deutches Theater. It was here that the notorious German Reich Commissioner Josef Terboven delivered weekly briefings to the German troops stationed in the region.

Det Norske teateret:
After the Second World War ended in 1945, Det Norske Teatret managed the theater until the mid-80s. It was later returned to Oslo Kinomatografer and renamed Kinoteatret.

Hotel Christiania Teater:
In 2006, the building was given the name Chrstiania Teater, and by 2010, it underwent a remarkable transformation. Since then, it has seamlessly juggled its roles as a welcoming hotel, a bustling theater, a delightful restaurant, and a lively bar. Through all these endeavors, it has proudly maintained its status as an unique landmark in the heart of Oslo.
