EDMONTON — Alberta is investing in one of Edmonton’s cultural bastions.

The Government of Alberta announced $4 million in funding to help the Citadel Theatre with its renewal project.

Sarah Pocklington, executive director of the theatre, called the funding “transformational.”

“As one of the gems of downtown Edmonton, the funds will be put towards capital infrastructure costs. We are really delighted as this building has long needed this level of support,” Pocklington said in a news release.

“Thank you to the Government of Alberta for recognizing the Citadel Theatre and for their support of arts and culture.”

The Citadel is one of Canada’s largest theatres and is the home of the Foote Theatre School.

The renewal project includes:

  • Replacing elevators, window glazing and skylights, flooring and mechanical systems
