3 Centennial Sq Victoria BC map
since 1914
Located in the heart of Old Town Victoria, the McPherson Playhouse has been the home of intimate theatre in Victoria since opening in 1914 as part of the Pantages chain of theatres found across North America. Evolving from its vaudevillian roots, the McPherson hosts a variety of professional, community and amateur events throughout the year. The 772-seat theatre continues to be one of the most impeccably maintained and finest examples of theatres from its era still standing in Canada today. The McPherson Playhouse was granted a heritage designation on October 25, 1995.
