The Grand Theatre, better known as The GRAND, is the oldest theatre downtown Calgary and is the city’s culture house for multidisciplinary live art. It is a nice space where artists of all walks can converge to think, dream, and bring many of their ideas to life—a space that is key to driving creativity and oneness with the communities they serve.

“This is the oldest theatre in the downtown core of Calgary,” says My City Speaks To Me host Lanre Ajayi. “And it presents cutting edge contemporary performing arts from around the world.”

Go behind the scenes to explore the beautiful architecture, its amazing history, and get a unique insight into what theatre has to offer. The GRAND CEO Tony McGrath joins Ajayi for this intimate and socially distanced episode.
