The Patricia Theatre is the longest running movie theatre in Canada – Since 1913.

Recently restored, the Patricia theatre is located in the heart of Historic Townsite and maintains the original experience of movie-goers paired with a state-of-the-art digital and sound system. Spectacular live events can still be attended here, too! Films screen nightly and change weekly.

Designed as a state-of-the-art cinema and vaudeville house, the Historic Patricia Theatre is an example of the Spanish Revival expression of the Arts and Crafts movement, which is rarely seen in Canada and more common to California, Florida, and Texas. It is one of only a handful of surviving atmospheric theatres in Canada, where the architectural elements and ornamentation evoke a sense of being outdoors. Designed by the influential Vancouver architect Henry Holdsby Simmonds, also responsible for the Stanley Theatre (1931) in Vancouver and the Odeon theatre chain.
