The Churchill Theatre in Bromleymarker, south east Londonmarker was built by the London Borough of Bromleymarker to designs by its borough architect's department.

It is carefully integrated into the central library complex overlooking Church House Gardens and Library Gardens. The slope of the site has been cleverly used; the auditorium is essentially below ground level and entered by descending staircases from the foyer.

The theatre was opened on 19 July 1977 by HRH Prince of Wales, and seats 785. It is now owned by the Ambassador Theatre Group and is successful commercially, acting as both a receiving and producing house, with many of its own productions transferring to the West Endmarker or tour nationally. An example, being recent tours of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. It was also the home of the first two series' of The Brian Conley Show before moving to The London Studiosmarker, and there is an annual pantomime season.

The Churchill is an example of a repertory theatre built in the style of European opera houses, with a large stage and sub-stage workshops. It was built on the side of a hill which disguises the number and size of the lower levels and gives the impression that it is smaller than it actually is.
