About The Avenue Theatre:
Located in the arts driven 118th Avenue community, Avenue Theatre is Edmonton’s most versatile multi purpose space. The facility itself has seen many changes over the years, from the early 1950’s movie theatre (1950’s to late 1990’s) to the Avenue Skatepark (2005-2008) and now a community arts venue. Avenue Theatre is home to one of the City’s largest stages, a massive 1500 square feet. From concerts to theatre productions and everything in between, patrons and event organizers alike are quickly falling in love with the Avenue.
By operating a multi purpose venue, The Avenue Theatre supports the revitalization of Alberta Avenue, thereby improving the public image of our community.
