Lightroom is a new permanent projection-based arts venue which opened in Kings Cross, London in February 2023. Created through a joint venture between 59 Productions and London Theatre Company, Lightroom creates remarkable artist-led shows for audiences in London and across the world.

We invite the world’s leading creative minds to use our vast space and revolutionary technology to create something completely new. Launching with collaborations with the much-loved British artist David Hockney
(Bigger & Closer) and actor and producer Tom Hanks (The Moonwalkers), Lightroom aims to be the home of stories from the world’s most exciting voices across all disciplines of the arts, music, popular science or beyond.

Lightroom is located in King’s Cross on Lewis Cubitt Square, adjacent to Coal Drops Yard and Central St Martin’s. The innovative show-space was designed by 59 Productions in close collaboration with Haworth Tompkins, who designed the venue as a sister space to the award-winning Bridge Theatre. Along with a generous Foyer and gift shop, the space also contains a bar and seating area in collaboration with St John.

In late 2023, Lightroom Seoul opened in the South Korean capital.
