The 200-seater Parkers Comedy theatre (previously the Globe Theatre) is a wonderful entertainment venue in Ormonde, Johannesburg, presenting a range of entertainment, music, and comedy shows. The original Globe Theatre was opened in the early 1890s by Barney Barnato under the name “the Empire Palace of Varietiesâ€. It hosted the first moving picture shows in South Africa, as well as Ghandi’s campaign of “passive resistanceâ€ in 1907. It has since been rebuilt at the Gold Reef City Casino complex and offers state of the art facilities, complete with velvet touches and elegant murals.
