About Columbia Theatre
The Columbia theatre was originally built in 1927 as movie theatre and has gone through many incarnations since. In 2011 Barry Buckland took possession of the theatre and has completely restored it to it's original glory. The main theatre has been converted into a cabaret style show room with table groupings on four levels. The stage has been moved back to its original position, allowing seating for 300 people. There is full sized cinema screen in the main theatre as well as a projection system. There is a full sound system/lighting system in the theatre and the acoustics are amazing. The upstairs theatre has been converted to a show lounge and seats 200 people. The theatre has an elevator and is wheel chair accessible. Both venues are licensed and serve food. Catering is also available through the theatre. The theatre is a 3 minute walk from the Columbia Skytrain station so is very accessible via transit. This theatre can accommodate a variety of functions such as concerts, dances, dinner theatre, corporate events, charity fundraisers, meetings, wrap parties, private screenings, film festivals, weddings, banquets and other private functions. For more information or to view the theatre you can contact Barry Buckland or Brad Tones at The Columbia Theatre. They are located at 530 Columbia Street, New Westminster. This classic, vintage building is a unique venue where extraordinary events come to life.

Perfect Fundraiser Venue, An Eventective User from Coquitlam

The Columbia offers cabaret/banquet style facilities where everyone is facing the stage. The venues are large enough for 200 to 300 people, yet intimate enough to engage your audience. This great functionality is housed in B.C.'s first atmospheric theatre which has been updated with luxurious red and gold carpet, gold accented moldings and great HVAC system for creature comforts.
