I would venture to say that most people in Vancouver have been inside the historic Stanley Theatre at least once.
Built in 1930, it lasted as a movie house until 1991, and after a few years in development limbo, emerged as the home of the Arts Club Theatre Company.
The theatre is located at 2750 Granville St.
