ABOUT, The Towne Theatre
The Last Century
At risk of closure in 2021, the community rallied to "Save Our Towne", raising money for the non-profit Okanagan Screen Arts Society to take over the management of the theatre.
The Okanagan Screen Arts Society has been hosting events at The Towne since 2016, highlighted by their very successful weekly "Monday Night at the Arts" evenings consisting of live music, film screenings... and the ever popular wine bar. Newer regular events include monthly LGBTQ2+ Youth nights; Indigenous Arts Evenings; and youth programming such as speciality Anime Nights.
The society looks forward to bringing a broadened slate of programming to The Towne including film screenings, live music, festivals, community gatherings, comedy, burlesque, and other variety acts.
Proceeds from the theatre go towards bursaries for local youth pursuing post secondary educations in the Arts, as well as the preservation and maintenance of the theatre itself.
Everyone is welcome at The Towne!
