Lester Centre of the Arts

The Prince Rupert Performing Arts Centre was built as a state of the art 700 seat facility opened in 1987. In 2006 it was renamed Lester Centre of the Arts. It is operated by a non-profit society for the cultural benefit of the people of the Pacific Northwest. The house features side and upper balconies, with unobstructed view from all seats. Modern sound and lighting equipment complement the comfortable padded seats to produce an enjoyable and enlightening theatre experience. The spacious lobby hosts art displays from local artists, as well as a soft bar.
