It's now called "Westside Church" with religious performances on Sunday. Need to check it out one day. Looks like it's a lot more popular as a church than a Performing Arts centre.

This facility, once the proud home of live theatre, especially Broadway touring companies and International shows, went into Bankruptcy under Garth Drabinsky and the city took it over. They then recently sold it to be used as a church. The biggest hullabaloo was it happened right before Christmas and part of the agreement (hopefully ongoing) is that the Nutcracker, a... More

The The Centre in Vancouver for Performing Arts is now closed. They still have a Nutcracker at Christmas, but Broadway shows no longer show here.

Like last year, it was a very special event, and this year, made even more special with the day being my birthday, and the event, my Christmas treat to my ladies!! The... More

We last visited the Performing Arts centre last June to watch our sons girlfriend perform in a flamenco. The venue is large and perfect for a performance with many people on the stage.

The building is a beautiful place to see a multitude of arts. The sound is excellent, the viewpoints really good and the seats comfortable.

I went there recently for a GNO whit my family and I think it was a wonderful evening. We had a great time watching 'the bad boys of dance'!! Beautiful architecture makes you feel like royalty when entering. Definitely worth a visit!

We (a senior couple) went to The Centre for the first time, during a recent two-night, December stay in downtown Vancouver, and attended a performance of Goh Ballet's 'The Nutcracker'. We had never been inside The Centre before, and as well, had never attended a ballet, so we were especially excited by the prospects of finally going there, experiencing the... More

Theatre had some very interesting things lined up. The line up appealed to a wide range of people. Affordable. Good line up.

Some great acts perform here. The acoustics are terrific. The shows can be a bit pricey but generally worth it. My only complaint is that there are not even washrooms for women. Very friendly staff.
