Patricia Theatre

In 1913 A little over three years after the town of Powell River was born, the Patricia Theatre was built.

A pulp and paper mill town on the sunshine coast Powell River has had a century of change, but a hundred years later, after being rebuilt in 1928, the Patricia Theatre is still standing.

The theatre has outlasted four other cinemas in Powell River. A timeless story of Canadian history Powell Rivers’s first and, so far, last, long-running theatre, the Patricia Theatre.

Opening in 1915, the Patrica Theatre is the oldest continuously running cinema & vaudeville house in Canada. This architectural gem incorporates all the classic elements of Hollywood fantasy movie palaces with its stained glass canopy, hand-stenciled French velvet curtains and lush murals of peacocks among misty landscapes. The Patricia is open for tours, by appointment, or by popping by to catch a movie.
