The Centennial Theatre Vancouver has an attention-grabbing exterior, luring in those passing by. The wave-like design of the glass is fun and different, the beautiful yellow, red, and blue lights carefully placed to hang down and around the upper left corner of the exterior, catching the eye, spiking curiosity, and letting you know that fun awaits inside! You’re welcome to join, and staying at one of the hotels near Centennial Theatre Vancouver makes it so much easier!
From the moment you enter, the sense of neighborhood and community is strong, with obvious care taken in the management, productions, and design of the building with art scattered around the walls in the entrance areas. There are three lobbies: the Upper Lobby with creative downward-facing lighting and gorgeous tile floor designs, the East Lobby with royal blue drapes hanging elegantly over the doorways into the theater, and West Lobby. The West Lobby is where you can find the goodies before the show at the concession stand.
As you walk into the theatre, nearly 700 cushion-covered seats line the aisles that lead straight to the stage, nicely framed with wood paneling to make the performance the focal point. The lovely blue mats help make the path more obvious if the lighting has been dimmed! Wheelchair access makes the events and shows accessible for everyone, and no one will be sad to have come once the royal blue curtain lifts and the show begins.
