If you want to know more about Prague black light theatre, go to our "What is Black Light Theatre?" article. The Black Light Theatre of Prague is located in a 17th century building, a former monastery of  the Carmelites of St. Gallus order. When the monastery was abolished in 1786 the building was used by a lace manufacturer followed by a number of shops. In 1930s the building was reconstructed and the hall was changed into a classy café. Under communism the House of Soviet Science and Culture was based there and the auditorium was adapted for lectures and concerts. In 1993 the Black Light Theatre of Prague was founded allowing visitors to enjoy Prague black light theatre performances in the foyer with original 18th century stucco details and ceiling frescos featuring Biblical themes such as the Last Supper, Jacob’s dream and Christ in Emmaus.
