Our Community, Our City
The Hollywood Theatre marquee, pictured during restoration on Feb 8th, 2020. The theatre is due to reopen soon as a mixed-use arts facility.
Good news! The Hollywood Theatre has been saved, and is scheduled to open soon. Residents are being encouraged by the recent ongoing renovations, including the re-installation of the original and restored neon sign. The theatre will open as a mixed-use venue with live acts, films and other community events.
The construction of the 6-storey strata building next door (to the west) has not yet begun. This was approved as part of the Heritage Revitalization Agreement in return for the theatre.
Please check back, as further updates become available.

First battle won – next challenge: block the Development Application!
Thanks to the tremendous turnout at our Public Meeting last Sunday, City Hall is taking notice!
At this point, we have a new challenge: the Development Application. We feel this is a flawed application, does not represent the facts, and violates the spirit and the letter of civic bylaws designed to protect exactly this kind of heritage, community space. This application must not be approved, and your public pressure is more important than ever!
