Historic Theatre and Vancity Culture Lab
1895 Venables Street Vancouver, BC V5L 2H6
The heart of The Cultch, our original 200-seat Historic Theatre has been home to hundreds of local and international dance, music, and theatre performances over the past four decades. Our 2008 renovations transformed the beloved space into a state-of-the-art theatre while still retaining the memories of performances past.
The Vancity Culture Lab, or C-Lab as we like to refer to it, was added to The Cultch during our 2008 renovations. This black box studio is a cinderblock construction with the latest in acoustical properties and has been referred to as the best “blackout” room in the city.
The York Theatre
639 Commercial Drive, Vancouver, BC V5L 2W2
Rescued from demolition and fully restored, this 100-year-old historical jewel is The Cultch’s newest venue. The York runs primarily as a rental venue, accessible to artists and community groups. The York’s restoration, when combined with The Cultch’s Historic Theatre, Vancity Culture Lab, and restaurants, studios and other amenities on Commercial Drive, has solidified the area as a major cultural district.
