Top choice theater in Commercial Drive

This once-abandoned church has been a gathering place for performers and audiences since being officially designated a cultural space in 1973. Following comprehensive renovations a few years back, 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 staging everything from spoken word to touring Ibsen productions.

Check the online calendar to see what's on stage during your visit. And, after the show, hang around in the lobby bar to meet the locals and peruse the artwork displays that are changed every few weeks.
