The Tivoli Theatre in Wimborne Minster, Dorset, was built in Wimborne Minster in 1936 as a theatre and cinema.[1] It features a wide variety of Art Deco features, including original chrome and Bakelite door handles.

Threatened with demolition in 1979 for a road-building scheme that was later abandoned,[2] the theatre fell into disrepair and closed in April 1980.[1] After lengthy campaigning, volunteers restored the theatre throughout 1993, and the theatre reopened to the public in November of that year.[3][4]
