Located in West Vancouver, Kay Meek Centre for the Performing Arts features two theatres: the 500-seat Main Theatre, and the more intimate 200-seat Studio Theatre.
The Main Theatre is a traditional proscenium arch theatre with continental seating that offers comfort and excellent sightlines. Beautifully finished with blond wood, soft pink brick and rich purple fabrics, the theatre also boasts acoustics that are well suited to the wide range of performances taking place in the venue.
The Studio Theatre, sometimes referred to as a black box theatre, offers adjustable seating for maximum flexibility of the space.
The theatres are designed to operate simultaneously and independently with their own lobby spaces and dedicated dressing rooms, as well as with generous staging and loading areas, green room and laundry.
The facility is very much the product of one person’s vision, energy and financial generosity. Mrs. Kay Meek was a long time resident of West Vancouver and supporter of Lower Mainland arts organizations.
As a rental and presenting venue, Kay Meek Centre offers an extensive range of activities that attracts patrons from West Vancouver, and across the North Shore and Lower Mainland. The diversity of events caters to a broad range of tastes and ages, and continues to develop large and varied audience.
As a presenter of cultural events, Kay Meek Centre is committed to presenting artistic excellence in a range of experiences that would not otherwise be available in West Vancouver. These events focus on theatre, music, dance and film.
Kay Meek Centre is a proud community partner of the West Vancouver School District and the Municipality of West Vancouver.
