Description

Theatre Junction Grand is a multidisciplinary performance space in Calgary, Alberta which focuses on contemporary live art. The space hosts original works, as well as touring works from around Canada and the world. Originally built in 1912, The GRAND has gone through many iterations, including as a theatre space, a movie cinema, and an indoor golf driving range. Theatre Junction purchased the space in 2004 with the help of philanthropist Jackie Flanagan and vision of Mark Lawes.[1]
