THE GRAND’s mission is to be a Culture House presenting high quality and thought provoking art, creating diverse and inclusive experiences, and bringing together artists and audiences to invoke a new way of thinking, appreciating and being, which transforms the community.
The historic GRAND theatre has spanned over a century as a hub for Calgary’s art, culture and political communities. Built in 1912, The Lougheed block has seen the city’s landscape evolve and we are proud to call this iconic structure our home.
We welcome companies, collectives and individuals to come together and learn from one another, building shared meaning and culture for our city.
The GRAND is a not-for-profit organization (Charitable Registration: 134483981 RR0001). Since 2006, the theatre has been a centre for creation and presentation of contemporary performance from Calgary, Canada, and around the world.
Today, the GRAND theatre houses a variety of event spaces perfect for a unique wedding, private event, corporate party or presentation, as well as arts, culture, performance and theatre events. With four distinct spaces to choose from, studios, dressing rooms and, of course, the versatile theatre are available to rent for a variety of purposes and events.
