The Dread Doctors Operating Theater is a lair located in the tunnels that run underneath Beacon Hills. It was originally used as the work place for The Dread Doctors. This is where they would conduct most of their experiments, turning young unsuspecting teenagers into monstrous chimeras in effort to resurrect The Beast of Gevaudan.
The lair was well hidden and difficult to find, Scott McCall, Malia Tate and Mason Hewitt were all down in the tunnels are were still unable to find it, it wasn't until later that Scott and Liam discovered their lair, but this was after they had already abandoned it. Theo then took over the operating theater, using it as a hide-out for him and his pack.
Before the Dread Doctors moved to a new located, a man was often seen inside a large transparent tube containing green liquid. Theo explains that the Doctors called him "Der Soldat" which means The Soldier in German. He was a Nazi Alpha Werewolf and the Doctors used him to prolonged their lives, they'd been doing it for decades.
