Park Theatre

Cross False Creek on the board-talking, swing-span Cambie Street Bridge, past the 1920 origin Sweeney Cooperage; over the sawmill clatter and log-boom waters, scrap metal shacks and floating houses; up the clipped slope of Fairview, past the 1936 build austere Vancouver City Hall with uncountable corners and a four-way neon clock'and arrive at a prime location in the fastest growing suburban neighbourhood in the city. Encounter a flamingo pink cake box: Odeon Theatre's darling 'architectural masterpiece.' The Park Theatre makes a splash appearance August 4th, 1941. An original and imposing spectacle with a stacked shape and free-form, fresh stylized structure. The up-top signage resembles four white neon clarinet keys with yellow dots and fingerboard-edged piano keys holding a triangular marquee that hoists and spills forth the radiant, two-way, argon-mercury blue 'PARK' in vertical essence. A strong visual rapport to beacon you into it's voyage. Vancouver's other one-of-a-kind community theatres appearing over the years are: Kerrisdale, Alma, Kitsolina, Cambie, Roxy, Star, Rio, Avon, Bay, Grandview, Windsor, Fraser, Progress, Dreamland, Circle, Dunbar, Rex, Broadway, Olympia, Oak, Totem, Regent, Victoria, Colonial, York and Varsity. May the innate wakefulness of this neighbourhood harlequin'the Park Theatre always be a thrive of colour and light in the Cambie Street village.
