Historic Theatre

1895 Venables St., Vancouver

The heart of The Cultch, our original 200-seat 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 Historic Theatre is a proscenium stage with a raked audience chamber and balcony. This space is ideal for dance and theatre performances, solo talks and acts.
