The HKT48 Theater (HKT48劇場), is where HKT48 holds regular Theater Performances. Currently it is set up as a non-permanent theater at the Nishitetsu Hall, on the sixth floor of SOLARIA STAGE building in Tenjin, Fukuoka. (Full address: 福岡市中央区天神2-11-3ソラリアステージ6F 西鉄ホール)

The group moved to this location after the area which housed the first HKT48 Theater was repurposed.

The non-permanence of the theater implies that the hall can also be booked for other events not related to the group, like plays or musicals. Due to this, there are periods where there are no performances by HKT48, and the theater infrastructure has to be brought down, to be rebuilt again when the other events are over.

The theater is composed of a front stage with two side runways going into the audience, and a B-stage in the middle of the audience. During performances members make use of all these stages, including the stairs in the back of the theater.

Former theater managers include Ozaki Atsushi, Sashihara Rino and, originally, Sato Kazuya.

The previous theater was in use from the group's debut on 25th November, 2011 until 31st March, 2016. It was located in Hawks Town Mall, Hakata, Fukuoka, right next to the Fukuoka Yahuoku! Dome.

This theater was the only 48 group theater to have a permanent built-in walkway with a rotating and elevatable round platform.

  • At HKT48's 7th year anniversary concert a new exlcusive HKT48 Theater was announced to open in 2020 just outside of the Fukuoka Yahuoku! Dome, close to where the original theater was built. Later it was revealed that the newly constructed mall would have a whole floor dedicated to the new theater.

The new theater was revealed on July 17th, 2020 with a press conference featuring many members and it was announced that the performances would start late October. It features 272 seats, standing area for nearly 30 people and space for disabled people. This is the first theater to have an official name and it will be rented out for other acts whenever HKT is not performing.
