Theatrical theater exclusively operated by Shinjuku Studio Alta is located on the 7th floor of Marion, Yurakucho, Tokyo. The place that used to be a movie theater has been reborn as a place where you can witness live theater.
“Alternative Theater” offers entertainment that transcends the language of the country, with the idea of Tokyo 2020 in mind.
The light pillar that rises in the center of the lobby has been around since the opening of “Yurakucho Marion”. By remodeling it, it was finished in a space where it can be immersed in a nostalgic atmosphere. In addition, toilets where Japanese style remains, carpets handed over from the former Toei Louvre, and devices that give a novelty to foreign tourists who want to be Japanese are now available.
When you enter the theater, you will feel as if you are in a strange space. The slightly small theater is quite high-spec. The ceiling is filled with LEDs, and the entire room, including the audience seats, is wrapped in color, creating a sense of unity with the stage. This is a facility not found in other theaters.
The “catwalk” that protrudes to surround the audience seats can entertain customers in all directions.
It also has a stage structure that supports wire action, making it possible to dive from the stand to the stage.
With these latest devices, you can enjoy a realistic and dynamic performance that you can’t experience anywhere else.
As a place to bring good old Japanese culture to the present age as an entertainment, it seems to be one of the spotlight spots in Yurakucho for us as well as foreigners.
Entertainment culture in Yurakucho called “Japan’s Broadway”
“Alternative Theater” is a theater created to transmit entertainment culture in Yurakucho called “Japan’s Broadway”. The place is the 7th floor of “Lumine 2” near JR Yurakucho station.
The theater that remodeled the space which was originally a movie theater is one of the highlights. While leaving the interior reminiscent of an old-fashioned movie theater, various ingenuity has been devised to show off more realistic performance. Take the ceiling LED moving light, 360 degrees catwalk, a powerful wire flying system, etc. the new and old fusion of the facilities creates a stage of new sensation.
