Temporary closure of Yates Ticket Centre

​Exciting new enhancements are coming to the Yates Theatre. As this renovation work gets underway, the Ticket Centre will need to close from January 8-26, 2017.

Ticket purchases or inquiries can still be made by calling (403) 329-7328 or in person at the ENMAX Centre Ticket Centre (2510 Scenic Drive South). Tickets can also be purchased online at http://www.enmaxcentre.ca.

In November, City Council approved advancing improvements to the Yates Memorial Centre after receiving $3.5 million from the Federal government's Canada Cultural Spaces Fund.

This funding allowed for work that was already planned to be done more quickly, including changes that will make the facility more accessible.

The renovations will increase performance capabilities and improve audience experience. The work will include upgraded mechanical and electrical systems, a fire sprinkler system, performance audio/visual systems, acoustic treatments, upgraded finishes like paint, flooring and ceilings, catwalk relocation, dressing room revisions, seating replacements and roof replacement. The new dollars will support barrier free washroom upgrades, the addition of elevators, signage and a concrete floor under the auditorium.

Some renovation work has already started and will continue with minimal impact on operations until September 2017. At that time, both the Yates Theatre and Ticket Centre are anticipated to close for a six month period (September 2017 April 2018) to complete the work within the theatre spaces.
