Renovated in 2009, the theatre seats a friendly-sized audience of 119 people in the fixed, tiered seats, leaving a flexible space in front of the stage which can either be used by the speakers/performers or to seat additional audience members (a total of 130 can be seated when needed). The stage itself is a good size at 40 square metres (4m x 10m), and has black curtains for maximum flexibility. 

The Yusuf Hamied Theatre has up-to-date audio visual equipment, a lighting rig with control booth at the back, and a decent air cooling system too. Christ's Films uses a 35mm film projector (the same format used by a lot of cinemas) and cinema grade Dolby Digital sound system for screenings.
