York Theatre

639 Commercial Dr, Vancouver

In 2008, the York Theatre on Commercial Drive was one-step away from being torn down and turned into townhouses. Jim saw the value in the space as a place for the arts and so, as a city councilor, he facilitated its renewal. With the help of Henriquez Partners Architects, Wall Financial Corporation and the City of Vancouver, the York Theatre was restored: the interior upgraded and the facade retuned to its 1937 art-deco appearance. Operation of the theatre was handed off to the Cultch and now the surrounding area benefits from an infusion of theatre.
