Seating plan

Seat maps show the location of your seat in the main auditorium or Almi Hall. Visit our virtual auditorium to see what the view from each seat looks like.
Note that the guard rail limits the view from the seats at both ends of row 1 on the 2nd balcony and from all row 1 seats on the 3rd balcony.
The Swedish and English subtitles are only partly visible from the seats at the ends of row 19 in the stalls (seats 698-700 and 727-727).
