Broadway Centrum is a television studio complex located in the New Manila district of Quezon City at Aurora Boulevard cor. Broadway (formerly Dona Juana Rodriguez) Avenue, Quezon City. It is one of two main GMA television studios; the other is GMA Network Center, which houses additional production facilities and the network's main television operations.
Since its opening, numerous television series have been broadcast live or taped at the facility, including many shows not broadcast on GMA. The complex currently houses two main studios - the Eastside and the Westside Theaters. The Eastside Theater, which can accommodate 400 audiences, currently serves as the main production facility for Eat Bulaga! and The Ryzza Mae Show. The Westside Theatre, with a 300-seat capacity, is currently being used by various GMA and TV5 programs, such as Face to Face.
The complex was inaugurated to usher GMA Network's broadcast in stereovision. In the 1990s, it served as the live studio of GMA Network's variety shows Lunch Date, That's Entertainment, Vilma! and GMA Supershow. In 1995, GMA Network Inc. constructed the second studio within the Broadway Centrum by renovating the Eastside Theater & renamed as "TAPE Studio, GMA Broadway Studio" that can accommodate 400 studio audiences for its noontime show Eat Bulaga!.
In 2010, Eat Bulaga temporarily used the Westside Studios while the TAPE Studios was being renovated at that time. Diz Iz It was the last GMA show that used the Westside Studios of Broadway Centrum in 2010. In the same year, the Westside Studios of Broadway Centrum did not have its tenants anymore for GMA Network because some of the network's shows migrated to their very own GMA Network Studios, while TV5 leased and revived the Westside Studios with a new and bigger format. The site is still currently owned by GMA Network and also shared with TV5.
Today, both studios of the Broadway Centrum are still active, the Westside being leased by TV5 and is now used for TV shows of the TV5 Entertainment Group such as Face To Face, The Jose & Wally Show, P.O.5., Star Factor, Hey It's Saberday and Artista Academy, while the Eastside Studio (TAPE Studio, GMA Broadway Studio) is still currently used by the longest-running variety show Eat Bulaga airing on GMA Network and the GMA Daily morning talk show "The Ryzza Mae Show". Face To Face was the last TV5 show that used the Westside Studios of Broadway Centrum in 2013, as of now, Westside Studios is no longer active to used it but the studio will be restore it and used it again by TAPE Productions anytime soon.
