The first play was shown here in 1947 when the theatre was much smaller. The bigger location it is housed in today was created between 2005 and 2010, when the building that housed the neighbouring cinema was added as part of a big renovation. At first it might look very fancy and modern with all the glass but, on closer inspection, history reveals itself: “You can see the original facade that was build back in 1887,” explains marketing manager Sophie Braam. Since the renovation, the DeLaMar has combined classical theatre history and modern beauty.
