Tofino Theatre

theatre sign_medTofino Theatre (a.k.a. Clayoquot Sound Community Theatre) is located at 380 Campbell St. (near 3rd St., lower level of District of Tofino Municipal Building — look for the sign). It is an intimate venue with great acoustics, built in 1983 by a team of volunteers who went on to stage many live plays in the space.

Today we host big-screen films, live concerts, stage productions, book launches, presentations, meetings and many other cultural events. Monday Night Movies are a regular happening. The theatre is also the venue for the West Coast Winter Music Series, the Tofino Film Festival, and many other community and touring events.

The 130 m2 (1400 sq ft) theatre has a 72-seat capacity, with banked seating. The technical booth is located at the centre/top of the seating area. The stage, with spots, floods and a good sound system measures 4.9m x 7.2m (35.3 m2) or 16′ x 23’8″ (381 sq ft). A projector and large screen allow us to show DVD, Blu-Ray and PowerPoint to a full audience. We also house a 7 ft Kawai concert grand piano. There is a small concession kitchen in the outer foyer from which beverages and appetizers can be served. Washrooms are conveniently located.

For booking info see this page.

The theatre also has a Facebook page.

CBC Radio star Stuart McLean and the Vinyl Cafe thoroughly entertained two full houses in January 2015. It was their smallest venue ever!
