The Oscar theater founded in 1906, is situated in one of the oldest parts of the town, right next to the Central station. Till 1926, the theater was owned by theater king Albert Ranft and the shows included large operettas. Gösta Ekman, the famous movie man in Stockholm was the owner of the theater in the 1930s. It is now owned and run by the Sandrew Metronome, and operetta shows are part of the repertoire, along with American musicals.

Strindbergs Intima Teater

Brainchild of renowned Swedish playwright August Strindberg, the Strindbergs Intima Teater was established in Stockholm in 1910. In its initial run as a performing arts hub, the Strindbergs Intima Teater hosted nearly 1500 performances based on about 25 of Strindberg's plays, such as The Ghost Sonata and Miss Julie. While the theater closed after Strindberg's death, it was revived by the Culture Department in 2001, and has since been restored to its thriving glory. Today, the theater hosts plays in tandem with the Royal Dramatic Theater, besides occasional in-house productions and plays for children and young adults.

Barnhusgatan 20, Norra Bantorget, Stockholm, Sweden, 111 23

This is the home of theatrical farce in Stockholm, and many of Sweden's most popular artistes have performed here. Maxim was built in 1946 as a radio studio. A famous Swedish radio program, The Breakfast Club with Sigge Furst, was recorded at these premises. For a while it was also used as a TV studio, but in 1971 it became purely a theater. In 1978 Maxim became private and one of the most successful one in the city at that.

Karlaplan 4, Stockholm, Sweden, 114 60

In the early 1980s, the Orionteatern theater took over an old workshop. The aim was to preserve as much as possible of the industrial ambiance. The workshop interior dated back to 1929, while opening the space up for theatrical performances. The result is a unique and exquisite theater space that suits the experimental repertoire of dance and circus perfectly. Linus Tunström frequently directs here.
