The Prince Rupert Performing Arts Centre was built as a state of the art 700 seat facility opened in 1987. In 2006 it was renamed Lester Centre of the Arts. It is operated by a non-profit society for the cultural benefit of the people of the Pacific Northwest.
The Lester Centre at the heart of arts in Prince Rupert is used for rehearsals, dance classes, meeting, forums, fundraisers, weddings, memorials, musical theatre productions and school district events to name a few. You might say we are a community gathering centre. The facility boasts a rehearsal room, and a number of meeting rooms as well as the lobby gallery display area and auditorium.
