Theatre Moderne (1914-1925) was a variety and revue playhouse in Christiania (now Oslo).
Theatre Moderne was opened in 1914 by the Hungarian Benno Singer in Tivoli Theatre's old building, located in Tivolihaven. During summer the variety was housed in a more airy hall closer to Stortingsgata; it had been moved there after a jubilee exhibition in the borough of Frogner.
