Mary Irwin Theatre

421 Cawston Avenue, Kelowna, B.C. (Downtown near the Grand Hotel and between the Kelowna Art Gallery and the historic Laurel Building).

The capacity of the tiered MIT is approx. 320 seats. Our patrons love this intimate setting since all seats have good visibility and acoustics.


We suggest the Library Parkade (accessed from Ellis or Doyle) if you do not find street parking closer. The elevator will be functioning and an attendant present for the evening.

The Parkade is connected to the Rotary Centre for the Arts by a well-lit walkway just west of the Parkade – turn right as you leave the Parkade entrance and find a ramp that leads down and right onto the walkway. It is about a half-block to the RCA’s south entrance.

Skyreach parking across Cawston Ave. from the RCA is more expensive.
