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.
