VenueFacility Features & Location

This is not the proposed design, but an architectural rendering.

Welcome to the Centre

The facility’s indicative design is over 120,000 square feet and includes two theatres and a studio space that will serve a broad variety of arts and community events. In addition, the Project includes renovation of an adjacent existing building for administration and office space for both the Kamloops Centre for the Arts Society and other resident organizations.

The facility is anticipated to include the following spaces:

  • Main stage theatre (~1,200 seats)
  • Small theatre (~450 seats)
  • Studio flexible space
  • Rehearsal, production and education spaces
  • Administrative spaces
  • Resident tenant spaces
  • Underground parking
  • Meeting rooms
  • Commercial space
  • Support and storage areas, including consideration for climate-controlled storage areas
  • Building systems

Proposed Location

Located in the downtown at 4th Avenue and Seymour, the Centre will contribute to downtown revitalization by promoting economic and population growth and contributing to a vibrant arts and cultural community in our city. The site has been identified as the preferred location for the Centre for a variety of reasons including: downtown location available for development; a sufficient size to meet the functional needs of the Centre; and current ownership by the City which enhances the degree of control in acquiring, servicing, and developing the site in alignment with Project-schedule needs. Additionally, the purchase of an adjacent building by Ron and Rae Fawcett will provide much-needed space for administrative and storage purposes without compromising the size of the community, event and performance spaces.
