Your donation belongs to a GRAND philanthropic legacy…


Over 100 years ago, Sir James Lougheed had the vision to include a theatre in the design and construction of the Lougheed Block. He believed that equal parts business and culture were the foundations of a great city.  The Sherman Grand was soon established as the premiere theatre in the Pacific Northwest hosting great artists from around the world including the likes of Sarah Bernhardt, The Marx Brothers, Yehudi Menuhin, Paul Robeson and many others.  The Grand immediately became the centre of Calgary’s cultural, social and political life. In 2005, Theatre Junction, under the direction of Mark Lawes, saved the GRAND from demolition, breathing new life into Calgary’s oldest theatre and establishing Theatre Junction GRAND as one of the leading contemporary theatres in Canada.
