Music Hall is a type of British theatre which had its start in the public "song and supper" rooms of the 1850s. It flourished from the 1890s to the Second World War, when other forms of popular music evolved and it began to be replaced by films as the most popular form of entertainment.
British Music Hall was similar to American vaudeville.
The term Music Hall is also used to describe a large musical venue, such as the Paris Olympia and Radio City Music Hall.
