Rental Info

Al Whittle Theatre

This soft-seat venue features 160 comfortable seats, each with a prime view of both stage and screen! In addition to a 16′ by 30′ projection screen, stylish black drapes, a 26′ x 40′ sprung wooden stage floor, and nice gear for live sound production, the theatre also features a complete Dolby Digital 5.1 cinema sound system, and some very swinging, state-of-the-art acoustical wall panels. There’s even a place (on every seat!) to put your favourite hot or cold beverage, which can be purchased from the Just Us Café, conveniently located in front of the theatre lobby.

Since the fall of 2004, when it officially opened its doors, the Al Whittle Theatre has hosted a large array of events including: music concerts, dance performances, live theatre, film screenings, fundraisers, meetings, literary readings, rehearsals, and more.
