Built in 1906, the Firehall building functioned as Vancouver’s No. 1 Firehall and the first motorized Firehall until 1975 when the Firemen moved out and the arts moved in. After a variety of tenants The Firehall Theatre Society was formed in 1982 and currently operates as one of the busiest venues in Vancouver. With over three hundred performances each year, the Firehall entertains audiences and provides a variety of theatre and contemporary dance that reflects Canada’s diverse and dynamic cultural mosaic.
Each season the Firehall Arts Centre produces between four and six theatre productions and between three to five dance productions and is also home to at least 25 other arts organizations as a theatre and studio rental facility, and Arts Centre Box Office. The Firehall offers a variety of season subscription packages, and memberships which are available through the box office. Gift certificates can also be issued for a specific performance or as a general pass to any Firehall Arts Centre theatre or dance series production.
Join us before or after the show in our friendly licensed lounge & gallery, one of Vancouver’s best kept secrets. Enjoy a drink and a snack in the courtyard when it’s seasonable and take in the art when its grey outside.Image Credit:#2: Circle Game: Emily Cooper#3: Chelsea Hotel: David Cooper#4: Dance Photo: Chris Randall
