Located in a 1906 heritage fire station in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side, the Firehall Arts Centre hosts theatre, dance and other performing arts shows.
Firehall Arts Centre
The Firehall Arts Centre is a community arts facility that features a 136 to 174-seat studio theatre. The venue hosts dozens of eclectic performances each month as well as a range of visual arts exhibitions in its small gallery/lounge.
The heritage building itself is a restored turn-of-the-century fire station that was once the first motorized fire hall on the continent.
The tiny theatre is a bit rustic and simple, but also comfortable and charming in its own way. With only seven rows of seating, you are guaranteed a fabulous view of the stage!
Where is the Firehall Arts Centre
The Firehall Arts Centre is located at 280 East Cordova Street which is just a couple of blocks north of Vancouver’s historic Chinatown and next door to the Vancouver Police Museum. It’s also just a few steps away from Sunrise Market which, at 300 Powell Street, is one of Vancouver’s most affordable fruit stands.
