The construction of the new theater of Emmen was started on October 10, 2014, after years of making plans. The municipality wanted to replace the theater Muzeval by a more modern theater for a long time, but the plans were slow to take off. Eventually, the plans were implemented and mayor Cees Bijl came up with the idea to combine theater and zoo (theme) park. After a selection of architects the design of the Danish architect Henning Larsen was chosen as the winning one. Ultimately, this design was further developed by the Dutch Van den Berg Group.  The official opening of the complex was in October 2016. The Atlas Theatre consists of theater hall,two foyers, theater restaurant, souvenir shop, seven conference rooms and so on.
