Vancouver East Cultural Centre

Performance complex in Vancouver, British Columbia, opened in 1973, popularly known as "The Cultch." As a presenting company, The Cultch curates unique, intimate, and diverse performances from Vancouver, Canada, and around the globe.

The main venue is a renovated church in the congregationalist style built in 1909. It seats 325 and has a balcony, a lounge/lobby space, but little production space. The Cultch also operates a gallery, and several multi-use spaces in East Vancouver. The York Theatre, which was originally the Alcazar Theatre, constructed in 1913, was rescued from the wrecking ball in 2013, and was renovated to become The Cultch’s third theatre space.

The Cultch has served as a venue for dance, music and theatre including shows from Theatre Passe Muraille, 25th Street Theatre, Tarragon Theatre, Rising Tide Theatre, Urban Ink Productions, and Ruby Slippers Theatre.

The Executive Director is Heather Redfern; she typically curates a program of over twenty different presentations each season.
