In 1967, the University of Alberta Students’ Union first opened their 720 seat concert hall. Developed by theatre designer James Hull Miller, it was originally known as SUB Theatre. In April of 1989, the site officially changed names to recognize the lasting contributions made to the University of Alberta and its students by the outgoing President of the University, Dr. Myer Horowitz. From then on known as the Myer Horowitz Theatre, this location has striven to deliver amazing experiences to the university and Edmonton communities as a unique and respected venue.
Located at 114th Street and 89th Avenue NW on the University of Alberta North Campus, this theatre has seen millions of patrons go through its doors to experience tens of thousands of performances during almost 50 years of operation!
Featuring a complement of full- and part-time staff, the theatre acts as both a rental facility and a producer/presenter of many touring artistic groups. With a long history of hosting thousands of artists from all disciplines of the performing arts, the theatre is highly respected for culture and entertainment in Western Canada and is known internationally as a reliable promoter and facility operator.
Owned and operated by the University of Alberta Students' Union, which effectively represents the 35,000 undergraduate students at the University of Alberta while also running numerous services and businesses, the Myer Horowitz Theatre remains a key focus for the SU’s long-term goals. The Students’ Union strongly believes that cultural and entertainment presentations are of great importance to both campus and community audiences, alike. Through its consistent and constant service, the SU is very proud of the Myer Horowitz Theatre’s legacy and continues to look forward to a bright and exciting future.
