Theater in Text mode

Theater is unlocked through normal game play when a player reaches level 77.

Players can 'pay to play' Theater from level 75 onward, where they can choose to pay with crystals (which will need to be bought with real money) to unlock the Picture early, rather than waiting until they reach level 77 and unlock it for free through normal game play.

Theater was introduced during the Halloween 2014 update.

From the Diary:

"Many years have passed since I was last at the theater. I couldn't find time for it. Suddenly, Christy tells me she's found a new magical photo of Richard's. As I looked at it, my face started shining with happiness! It was a photo of a wonderful theater. No doubt a lot of interesting and exciting adventures are waiting for me in this photo."

Theater is one of the pictures in the game that does not reward any combining elements, but does reward collection items that require a large number of combining elements to combine.


The following is a list of hidden items found in Theater in most modes. Depending on the Picture Level and Game Mode you may not have to find all the items in one visit.  Morphs and Pieces modes have their own items that need to be found, separate from those listed below.

Resource Demands and Rewards for PlayingEdit

Theater is a Collection Item only Picture. This means its list of potential rewards for each play only contains regular Collection Items, mode dependent Collection Items (depending on what mode the Picture is currently in), and Quest Items (if a Quest is currently active for the Picture). The list of potential rewards for Theater is made up of 11 Collections:

When Theater is first opened, and so is on Novice level, only the first 3 items from the Anonymous's treasures collection will be on the list of potential rewards. As the level of the Picture is increased, more and more items will be unlocked as potential rewards.

The amount of energy required to play Theater will increase as the level of the Picture is increased. The experience points and coins rewards for each win of the Picture will also increase to match the increase in resource demands, as will the pool of potential collection item rewards:
