Located on the south side of highway 1 running across Upper Lonsdale Avenue, Centennial Theatre is a community gathering place to enjoy live performances and entertainment. This week the (VIMFF) Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival is taking place with nightly showings of the feature films taking part in the festival. But there are always events to attend.
Ongoing week to week there is something fun to checkout at the theatre. Right across the street the Harry Jerome Community Centre offers tons of fitness and health activities for you to do. The outdoor lawn bowling club is within the area and is slated to be converted into a new housing and commercial building development called Lonsdale Square. The area is becoming very vibrant with the development applications and diverse multicultural community sharing the corridor.
The diversity of the community shows itself within the programming at this theatre as you can find everything from bagpipes, to choirs, to rock bands to comedy stand up and more. Multi language entertainment to checkout is something the management of this venue offers. The Lonsdale community has many Persians, Koreans, Japanese, Chinese, Indians, Russians, and beyond. When you walk Lonsdale you can see this in the building advertising in various languages. Which lends itself to a good variety of culinary experiences close by which you can enjoy before an event here.
You can easily take the bus to this area as the Translink buses run North and South on Lonsdale Ave connecting with the Seabus and Upper Lonsdale area including Grouse Mountain. Out front on the north side of the theatre are electric vehicle charging stations if you happen to drive an EV. If your kids like skate boarding you can checkout the large and accessible skate park right beside the theatre.
