About the Arden
Intimate, comfortable, superbly equipped
Welcoming more than 100,000 patrons to over 315 events annually, The Arden has presented excellence in artistic programming for over 30 years, offering a variety of music, theatre, and dance events for arts lovers of all ages. Thanks to significant support from the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Arden Theatre invested in a state-of-the-art sound console and installed new theatre seats and aisle lighting in the summer of 2011 to enhance the overall experience and comfort and safety of our patrons. This was followed in 2013 with improvements made to our concession and box office to help serve our patrons and in 2015 LED lighting was installed in the theatre to improve overall safety.
Since opening its doors on December 2, 1983, the Arden Theatre has played host to some of the world's most renowned artists like Celine Dion, Cowboy Junkies, Robert Cray and Arlo Guthrie - to name a few - as well as local musicians, dance schools, theatre troupes and school productions from our own community.
