Ship's theatre

The USS Enterprise's theater

A theater was a performance space found aboard Federation starships and bases, with a stage and seating for a live audience. The theater could be used to show plays as well as musical performances. The Constitution-class USS Enterprise and the Galaxy-class USS Enterprise-D both had theaters. (TOS: "The Conscience of the King"; TNG: "Sarek", "The Nth Degree", "Frame of Mind")

In 2266, Anton Karidian, along with his daughter Lenore and the Karidian Company of Players, performed Hamlet for the crew of the USS Enterprise. The Enterprise's theater later became the site of Anton Karidian's death after his daughter, driven mad, killed him with a hand phaser while trying to murder Captain James T. Kirk. (TOS: "The Conscience of the King")

In 2367 Doctor Beverly Crusher staged her version of the play Cyrano de Bergerac with Reginald Barclay in the leading role. (TNG: "The Nth Degree")

For the theater room as it appeared on "Sarek" and "The Nth Degree", the Ten Forward set on Paramount Stage 8 was used. The theater in "The Conscience of the King" was a redress of the engineering set.

On smaller starships, the mess hall could be converted into an impromptu movie theater, or a simulation of such a theater could be recreated on a holodeck. (ENT: "Dear Doctor", "Cold Front"; VOY: "Repression")

The script of "Return to Grace" mentions Didactic Theater as a type of Cardassian theater.
