Theatre Station is a location in Metro Last Light. It is situated near the Bolshoi Theatre and is known as Teatralnaya (Театральная) Station in the real world. In Metro: Last Light, the station seems to be owned by the Red Line.


Theatre Station, also known as Bolshoi, is the cultural center of the whole Metro. Artyom and Pavel head towards the station after they escape from the Reich to make contact with Polis. The two access the station by crossing Theatre Square on the surface. During the war a returning airplane lost control and crashed into the station ticket hall, providing travelers and mutants access to the station. It is unknown who the station is controlled by, but the Red Line is shown to have some considerable of influence on the station as several communist soldiers are seen guarding the station and several conversations suggest that the Red Line controls the station. The presence of a free market, and the sheer number of welcome refugees from Reich would seem to contradict this. Two locals in an office near the entrance of the station can be heard discussing the situation, and it seems that the station is technically independent, but it effectively owned by the Red Line.

The main surface entrance to the station is locked by automated hermetic doors (which are usual for any other Moscow Metro stations). The station is well protected by communist soldiers and two heavily-armored handheld-flamethrower wielding guards guarding the entrance.
