This renovated heritage theatre has reclaimed its original name and it is now called the Columbia. While Lafflines Comedy Club is thriving with the flexibility of two venues, the Columbia is now the talk of the town with live music concerts, corporate events, community fundraiser events and weddings.

Juliet balconies direct from our factory for a price you won’t beat anywhere. No hidden costs – all prices are inclusive of vat, paint, galvanising and fittings. Many balconies in stock for immediate UK delivery. Or we can make any design you want in any size – just call us!

Was it never demolished? News reports all say that Lafflines comedy club has been renovating the old Burr Theatre and is moving in this spring.

The ‘highlights’ have now been removed. Thanks for pointing that out.

Down the street a block is what was New Westminster’s other prime movie experience, the Paramount. Although I have no info on its history, I do recall that the inside was equal to the Columbia (Burr Theatre), as was the movie-going experience.
It’s still standing, but the insides were massively redesigned (tho apparently not gutted) to suit its current format, that of a strip club.
In my mind, the Paramount was a nicer theatre than the Columbia.
