Frank & Ellen Remai Arts Centre is a performing arts centre in the River Landing area of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. The centre is owned by and the main venue for the Persephone Theatre. Constructed in 2007 at a cost of $11 Million Canadian, the main theatre seats 450, with a second smaller 100 seat theatre and other supporting facilities and workshops that make up the centre.
Plans exist to expand the Frank & Ellen Remai Arts Centre to also include the Art Gallery of Saskatchewan as part of a three story expansion, at an estimated cost of $64 Million. The new gallery would replace the existing Mendel Art Gallery.
