The star of a London musical walks out before the curtain up, but the show must go on in a haunted theatre, The Regency. 40 years previously, the star of Hamlet was murdered, and more are dying to keep a dark secret.
Did You Know?
The auditorium scenes for the Regency Theatre were filmed at the former Granville Theatre of Varieties on Walham Green (now Fulham Broadway) in London. Built in 1898 by prolific theatre architect Frank Matcham it closed in 1950, and was altered to serve as a film, then television studio from 1955 to 1968. The Beatles did a television special there in October 1964. Outrage at its demolition in 1971 was instrumental in motivating legislation to protect other historic theatres and cinemas. See more
The police are unable to access the dressing room/murder scene because the door has been bolted and padlocked. The officer then takes an ax not to the bolt or lock but to a flimsy panel, after which the door just swings open. See more
