Yates Renovation Update

‚ÄčIf the construction outside the Yates Theatre has you curious about the upcoming renovations, then plan to attend the City's Yates renovation update. City of Lethbridge staff will be joined by Songer Architecture Inc. to share design concepts and answer questions from the public about the redevelopment of the Yates and Sterndale Bennett Theatres.

Yates Renovation Update
City Hall Foyer | March 13, 2018
Drop-in | 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Conceptual drawings will be on display along with a 3D model which will help residents visualize this new and improved space. Refreshments will be provided.

The facility, which is anticipated to re-open this July, will boast many new upgrades that will increase performance capabilities and enhance audience experience. The renovations include upgraded mechanical and electrical systems, a fire sprinkler system, performance audio/visual systems, acoustic treatments, upgraded finishes including paint, flooring and ceilings, catwalk relocation, dressing room revisions, seating replacements and roof replacement.

Changes to make the building more accessible are also underway. This includes barrier-free washrooms and the addition of elevators.

The Yates fully closed to the public in September 2017, including the ticket centre. Ticket purchases or inquiries can still be made by calling (403) 329-7328, in-person at the ENMAX Centre Ticket Centre (2510 Scenic Drive South) or online at
