Castle Theatre

The Castle Theatre in Castlegar has seen several renovations recently and will soon be showing classic movies and documentaries. In addition, the theatre will see its coffee shop opening up as well.

“We’re kicking it all off on March 2nd with Hicks on Sticks,” said co-owner Dean Steblyk. “It’s a documentary made by a couple of local guys and has won some awards. It’s going to be the Kootenay premiere here. The following Sunday we have a live band that’ll be here for our opening weekend. We’re going to have documentaries on Mondays and themed nights on Fridays that will change monthly. We’ll also have jam nights on Thursdays.”

The coffee shop will be open for the events and Steblyk says they’ll be looking at opening it for more hours after that.

He says that the renovations have gone very well. “We had some stuff done in the late summer,” he said. “We then worked on getting the coffee shop all set up. Now that that’s ready we’re good to go. Right now we’re just testing our sound system and projector. We’ve got a bigger projector now and better sound so we’re going through the paces there but pretty much ready to go.”

Steblyk says that residents can look forward to more local concerts on a regular basis. He also says they will have a suggestion box at the movies and look forward to hearing suggestions from residents.
