The Hollywood Theatre is the Vancouver’s West Side cultural hub where social bonds are forged and treasured memories will continue to be created. We will energize the neighbourhood by creating a space for the enjoyment and creation of the arts.
We are dedicated and committed to revitalize the Hollywood Theatre and to provide local access to the arts for the community, which will in turn add energy and increase commerce into the local business area.
The Hollywood Theatre operated as a neighborhood theatre from 1935 to 2011, and is a superior example of the Art Deco style. Architect Harold Cullerne designed the elegant theatre with neon signs reflective of the streamlined Jazz Age. It evoked the glamour and elegance of the 1930s, a time when Vancouver was growing rapidly, building landmark structures such as Vancouver City Hall, the Lions Gate Bridge and the Burrard Bridge, Art Deco icons that still define our city.
Our programming is multi-dimensional and will include independent film screenings, musical performances from a wide spectrum of music genres, fine art performances, live theatre, comedy, film premieres, festival events, educational events, technical seminars and lectures as well as providing room availability and access for events dedicated to charitable fundraising, building-strength-in-community events, trade symposiums, non-profit organizations and free events.
