Description


Boissevain Community Theatre is a community-owned, non-profit movie theatre and performing arts facility in Boissevain, Manitoba. It is managed by the Boissevain & Morton Theatre Committee: a volunteer board jointly established by the Town of Boissevain and the RM of Morton.

At our current location on Stephen Street, a movie theatre opened in 1955 as the Victoria Theatre having moved into a new building from its former location on South Railway Street. After closing in the early 1980s the facility was reopened as the Community Theatre on November 2, 1984 and continued on as both a cinema and live performance theatre.

Structural problems uncovered in 2009 led to the building being closed in May 2009 and substantially demolished in mid-2010. The construction of a replacement building began in Fall 2011, and the new Community Theatre held its grand opening on June 6, 2012. At the same time, a new digital cinema projection system was installed.

Our building project was been supported by local donations from individuals, businesses and organizations; grants from Manitoba Community Places Program, the Manitoba Community Services Council (Manitoba Lotteries), and the Southwest Regional Development Corporation; and major contributions from the municipal councils of Boissevain and Morton.
