The building is category B listed by Historic Environment Scotland, and is operated by the charitable organisation Horsecross Arts, alongside sister venue Perth Concert Hall.

It was created by the Perth Theatre & Opera House Co Ltd and designed by Dundee's City Architect William Alexander.

The founding lessee was JH Savile, who owned Paisley Theatre, and in 1909 bought the Perth theatre outright. The Savile family continued to run
