The Waterfront Theatre is a beautiful soft seat theatre with impressive drapes framing the raised proscenium stage. There is a raked seating area, ample performance space, a concession area, and a lobby art gallery, making this venue ideal for performances and festivals. Originally the old Tyee Machinery Building, the Waterfront Theatre was transformed over 30 years ago into the 224 seat theatre it is today.

Located right next to the Granville Island Kid’s Market, the Waterfront Theatre can accommodate school/tour bus drop-offs right out front. It is owned by CMHC-Granville Island, and stewarded by the Granville Island Theatre District and Carousel Theatre for Young People.

For non-pandemic capacity and other technical specifications, please refer to the documents in the sidebar.
