Ion Niuni had the project of constructing the first theatre in 1817 in Romania. Being a macedo-romanian he did a good job. This was also the first building in Europe being lighted with some special lamps. The interior is the copy of the Burgtheater from Vien and Ieronimus Platzger, the austrian painter decorated it. The ornaments are in style rococo, being either red or gold. Francisc I and Augusta Carolina were the royal visitors in Oravita, for whom this building was constructed. It has a length of 36 m and it is 15m wide.

From the foajer it can be easily accessed the balconies. On the basic ground there are the circles of the best places indeed. The big painting Cortina Mare was picted by Francisc Zech, the director of the Gymnasium of Art in Oravita. Several plays were performed here since its realization, coming from the country and abroad too. In 1868 the troop Pascaly came here along with the famous romanian poet, Mihai Eminescu. For this reason the theatre is called just like the poet.
