Located in downtown Vancouver, the Kiggins Theatre was named for and financed by local mayor J.P. Kiggins. It opened on April 24, 1936 with Claudette Colbert in “She Married Her Boss”.
The theater’s design is austere, yet elegant. Noteworthy features include Art Deco patterns on both interior and exterior walls which are rendered in fireproof concrete and still-functioning custom light fixtures placed throughout the building.
The neon Kiggins sign is original, but the marquee was updated in the 1950’s.
The Kiggins Theatre was closed on May 31, 2010, with a triple feature programme;“Alice In Wonderland”, “The Bounty Hunter” and “The Loser”. After some renovations, the Kiggins Theatre was reopened in 2011.
