Rio Theatre


Save the Rio Theatre!

The Rio Theatre needs your help! Recent zoning changes have attracted the attention of developers who want to buy the Rio and tear it down for a new development project that would leave a big cavernous hole on the corner of Commercial and Broadway for years, and there is only one way to stop them: the Rio needs to buy the building. To do that, they  need to raise a $3 million down payment, which they hope to with $1 million from donors plus $2 million from private investors.

The Rio Theatre is one of the last remaining indie theatres in Vancouver. It is an award-winning live performance venue/single-screen cinema that has become a centre for indie performance arts in Vancouver. If you want to help support the Rio Theatre, visit the Save the Rio Theatre Indiegogo page and help spread the word. There’s  a lot of great perks to buy on their page, such as Rio year-passes, tickets, and various goodies donated by local businesses. More importantly, you’d be doing your part to keeping alive such a pivotal part of Vancouver’s art scene.
