Please save the Hollywood interior and exterior and maintain it as a community and cultural space

This petition had 5,132 supporters


The one-of-a-kind Vancouver Hollywood Theatre, built in 1935, is due to be gutted and become a fitness centre - an intolerable fate for one of our last iconic theatres left standing in Vancouver. 

Thanks to all of you who have signed the first petition, the City has granted a 75-day moratorium on any development, renovation or demolition of the Hollywood. We won the first step, but let's not waste any time. Let's work toward a new beginning for the Hollywood Theatre.

Saving the Hollywood will not only preserve a beloved heritage building, but it will also maintain the increasingly fragile culture, community and unique appeal of Kitsilano.

We call on the Owner, the community, the West Broadway local businesses and the City to work together to preserve both the interior and exterior of the Hollywood and maintain it as a community, cultural and public event space for future generations.

We are respectfully asking to sit down with the Owner and the City, and devise together a new plan for the theatre that will benefit all parties – the community, the owner, and the city as a whole.
