(De'vID < MO, 3/16/2015):   {muchpa'} is fine for "theater" (or "theatre"), but a better translation might be "auditorium."  Maltz agreed with your observation that it's kind of close to {puchpa'}, but he said that, given his viewing of Terran plays and movies, that might be apt and it didn't bother him at all.  If "Bloomsbury Theatre" refers to the whole building - auditorium, lobby, dressing rooms, {puchpa'mey}), not just the room where the performance takes place - he'd go with {much qach}.

Everyone's a critic!
