The Paris Theatre (also known as Paris Studios)
was a former cinema located in Lower Regent
Street, London, which was converted into a theatre
by the BBC for radio broadcasts. It was used for
several decades by the BBC as the main venue for
the comedy programmes requiring an audience
broadcast on BBC Radios 2 and 4.

The BBC recorded performances by musical artists
at the Paris Theatre including acts such as,
AC/DC, The Beatles, David Bowie, Family,
Streetwalkers, Jeff Beck, Deep Purple, Dr.
Feelgood, Fleetwood Mac, Genesis, Led Zeppelin,
Joni Mitchell, Pink Floyd, Rod Stewart, Simple
Minds and The Wailers. Some of these
performances were recorded as part of the In
Concert and Sounds of the Seventies series, in
front of live studio audiences.

The Paris Theatre was closed in 1995, being
replaced by the purpose-built BBC Radio Theatre
in Broadcasting House. The demise of the Paris
Theatre was marked with a commemorative
concert and broadcast of the last show ever to be
recorded at the theatre, namely the final show in
series two of The Skivers
