The word Garneau shines brightly in distinctive red neon lights high above the steeped marquee of this landmark venue on one of Edmonton’s busiest streets. Designed and built in the 1940s by a noted Edmonton architect, Garneau Theatre was carefully restored in the mid-2000s to its original glory. It’s classic art-deco style combines the nostalgia of old Hollywood with the excitement of today’s modern cinematic experiences. The lobby welcomes you in with a bold colour scheme, curved walls, and a sense that thousands of people have made memories walking into this same space. You enter the theatre to find deep red carpets, creaky blue chairs, and gold highlights around the proscenium. Unlike many theatres built in that era, the Garneau forewent a balcony in favour of a raised terrace at the back. The elevated stage and screen make this theatre an ideal venue for talks, conferences, and live performances.
