Venue Details


Located across from the main Post Office at Georgia and Hamilton Streets.


Enter the parkade off Cambie Street. Since parking in the vicinity of Vancouver Civic Theatres is extremely limited, we do our best to restrict use of our parkade to theatre patrons on show nights.

There is, however, limited parking in the parkade and it fills up early. There is no guarantee of available parking even with a ticket to a Playhouse event.

Patrons with valid Disabled Decals may reserve parking, as available, by calling 604.665.2193 weekdays at least 24 hours in advance of the performance. Please have your decal number and ticket information ready. An elevator operates from both floors of the parkade to the Plaza Level on Hamilton Street.

Rates in the QET parking garage are as follows:
Day – Weekday (6am-6pm): $12.50
Day – Matinee/Saturday: $7.00
Evening - QET/Playhouse event (6pm-closing): $10.00
Evening – Outside event (6pm-closing): $20.00
Monthly: $179.25

The Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association provides links to parking information and downloadable maps of the downtown area. Visit

For those who would rather not use the stairs, an elevator in the main lobby operates between the Main Lobby and the Balcony.

Hearing Devices:
For those requiring hearing assistance, complimentary receivers for the Sennheiser Infrared Transmission System are available at no charge at the Lobby Coat Check. Quantities are limited. A valid driver’s licence or credit card is required. Lastly, binoculars may be rented at the Main Lobby Coat Check.

Children Rules

Please note that as of January 1, 2012, Vancouver Civic Theatres require that all audience members, including children, must have a ticket. There are no exemptions to this policy regardless of the child's age.

If you bring young children to a performance, please be respectful of other patrons by encouraging them to observe proper theatre etiquette such as sitting still and not takling during the performance. If children become restless during the performance, you may be asked to take them into the lobby.


Seating Capacity:
668 including 5 Wheelchair spaces.

Seating Layout:
The theatre is quite small, with 16 rows on the main floor, so all seats are exceptional for viewing and sound. The main floor is divided into three sections; Centre, Left and Right. The rows are tiered. The Balcony has three rows on the Left and Right and seven rows in the Centre.
