Myer Horowitz Theatre
On with the show
Experience the arts, intellectual debate, and community events. The Myer Horowitz Theatre serves as a venue for both the campus and the city as whole, bridging the divide between town and gown.
- State of the art
The technical and support systems in the Theatre will be up-to-date and allow for cost-effective, efficient, and competitive operation. This includes updating the audiovisual and multimedia capabilities of the Theatre so that modern presenter needs can be better addressed.
- Out on the terrace
By expanding the lobby and adding a terrace, a wider variety of events can be hosted in the Theatre, and increase the number of events they host in a year.
- Continuing the legacy
The Myer Horowitz Theatre has been a well-respected performing space for the campus and beyond for 50 years. This modernization allows the Students' Union to continue this legacy for many years to come.
- The 'go-to' theatre on campus
Improving the patron experience includes better pre-show spaces (lobby improvements) and an improved show experience (better audiovisual capabilities and seating).
