Lonely Planet review

This once-abandoned 1909 church has been a gathering place for performers and audiences since being officially designated as a cultural space in 1973. Following a comprehensive recent renovation, the beloved Cultch (as everyone calls it) is now one of Vancouver's entertainment jewels with a busy roster of local, fringe and visiting theatrical shows from spoken word to touring Chekov productions.

Check the online calendar to see what's on stage during your visit. And, after the show, hang around in the lobby wine bar to meet the locals and check out the exhibition in the on-site art gallery – it changes every three weeks. While you're here, ask the staff about the nearby York Theatre , a renovated studio performance space the Cultch plans to open soon.
