Popular musicals are a large part of the menu at this beloved heritage theater, but there's also often a contemporary international or Canadian play added to the mix. Officially called the Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage (a moniker that not a single Vancouverite uses), the Stanley is part of the Arts Club Theatre Company, Vancouver's biggest.

The 1200-seat theater was opened as a movie house and live venue in 1931, and it's interior is an unusual mix of the era's architectural fashions, from Moorish to art deco. And if you're reading this in 2107, it's time to open the time capsule of contemporary street photographs that was recently buried outside the theater.
