Helsingborg City Theatre (in Swedish: Helsingborgs stadsteater) is the city theatre of Helsingborg in south of Sweden. It is one of the most well-known city theatres in Sweden.

The present Helsingborg City Theatre was built in 1921, after the old Helsingborg Theatre (located at the same place, built in 1877) was demolished. But even before that the location harboured a small theatre house dating back to 1821. Being a well-placed geographical link between Sweden and Denmark, Helsingborg has a proud and steady theatre tradition, particularly from European guest touring theatre companies.

The theatre's productions became famous through the management of director Ingmar Bergman (who managed Helsingborg City Theatre in the years 1944-46. In 2010 Ingmar Bergman got a square named after him to honour his contributions to the city's theater-culture.
