Initially built in 1949 as a cinema, the Crown Harriston is a postmodern structure that retains its original art-deco features. In 2016, it transformed and re-emerged as a vibrant Cultural Centre.

With a commitment to constant improvement, The Crown Harriston strives to provide a unique and ever-evolving experience for its visitors. Whether attending a show or event, guests can expect a dynamic and immersive atmosphere as the venue continues to enhance its offerings.

The auditorium is remarkable, boasting exceptional acoustics that enhance the overall experience. It boasts a capacity of 210 vintage seats. The three-tier stage, accompanied by steps on both sides, adds a touch of elegance and grandeur to the space. An authentic wall screen adds to the ambiance.

The venue is equipped with a state-of-the-art movie projector, ensuring high-quality visuals. Additionally, the up-to-date sound system guarantees impeccable audio, while the availability of various stage lights and dimmable overhead lights allows for versatile and customizable lighting options.
