Broadway Centrum is a television studio complex located in the New Manila district of Quezon City at Aurora Boulevard cor. Dona Juana Rodriguez Avenue, Quezon City. It is one of two main GMA television studios; the other is GMA Network Center, which houses additional production facilities and the network's main television operations.

Since its opening, numerous television series have been broadcast live or taped at the facility, including many shows not broadcast on GMA. The complex currently houses two main studios - the Eastside and the Westside Theaters. The Eastside Theater, which can accommodate 400 audiences, currently serves as the main production facility for Eat Bulaga!. The Westside Theatre, with a 300-seat capacity, is currently being used by various GMA and TV5 programs, such as Face to Face, Popstar TV and P.O.5.

The complex was inaugurated to usher’s GMA Network's broadcast in stereovision. In the 1990s, it served as the live studio of GMA Network's variety shows, Lunch Date, That's Entertainment, Vilma! and GMA Supershow. In 1995, GMA Network Inc. constructed the second studio within the Broadway Centrum by renovating the Eastside Theater (now TAPE Studios) that can accommodate 400 studio audiences).[1][2]

As of 2010, Eat Bulaga! temporary used the venue of Westside Studios while Eastside Studios was renovated at that time, and Party Pilipinas was the last GMA show used the Westside Studios before went back to their original studio GMA Network Studio 7. also In 2010, GMA Broadway Studios can no longer have its tennants anymore for GMA 7 because some of the former GMA shows are migrated to their very own new GMA Network studios while Kapatid network TV5 bought purchased and revived the Broadway Studios with a new and bigger format.
