Adam Smith Theatre


Located in Kirkcaldy's town centre, the Adam Smith Theatre is a popular venue in a traditional setting, well-loved for its high-quality shows, full-scale cinema and long history as the heart of the local arts scene.

Opened in 1899 as a memorial to social philosopher Adam Smith - now widely regarded as the father of modern economics - this stunning theatre has an impressive facade and overlooks the Memorial Gardens and another OnFife venue, Kirkcaldy Galleries.

Enjoy a fantastically diverse and popular programme of events at this 475-seat venue, including comedy, dance, drama, music, and children's theatre.
