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.
