Stanley Park's Malkin Bowl has been home to Theatre Under The Stars for nearly six decades. Large-scale Broadway productions like The King and I and Oklahoma marked its first years.

It holds two major productions every summer with a cast and crew of non-professionals and volunteers. Check website for further details.

With the capacity to accommodate about 600 guests, West Vancouver Atrium is an ideal place to hold fundraisers, galas and art exhibitions.

Overlooking the Spirit Square, the Great Lawn and the Water Fountain, this atrium features few modern art installations and paintings that gives this atrium a very classy look.

On many postcards of the city, you will find images of this "five-sailed" complex adorning the harbor shoreline. This should be high on the list of things to see for first timers to the city.
