The Park Theatre in Cambie Village

I had the pleasure of visiting a theatre again—the first time since Covid hit. Park Theatre is one of Vancouver’s oldest, which opened in 1941, and passed through multiple owners since being acquired by Cineplex Entertainment.

What I loved is how they managed to preserve the charm of movie night. Still somewhat a hole in the wall, but surprisingly well-maintained through a $300,000 renovation made by its previous owner. It features an 18 x 36 foot screen, and a small concession stand that will transport you back to the golden age of cinemas.

Park Theatre is a landmark in Cambie Village, also known as the “Heart of Vancouver”, in one of the city’s primary heritage boulevards. It’s connected to main transit lines, including the 99 B-Line and the Canada Line Skytrain.

You feel a real sense of community in Cambie, with places for residents to live, work, shop, and play. The city’s Cambie Corridor Plan provides a framework to guide change and growth over the next 30 years, with plans to add over 30,000 new homes to double the population.
