The Molson Canadian Theatre in Coquitlam, British Columbia is an 1,074-seat live event theatre adjoining the Hard Rock Casino Vancouver. The $20 million venue opened with a show by Little Richard on September 16, 2006, and was named for local radio legend Red Robinson. It was originally called the The Red Robinson Show Theatre and later The Theatre, but was changed to its current name in April 2016 due to brand sponsorship.
A wide variety of acts have appeared at the theatre, including singers (Tony Bennett, Jewel, Paul Anka), pop/rock groups (Barenaked Ladies, The Beach Boys, Chris Cornell), comedians (Dennis Miller, Jay Leno, Howie Mandel, Bill Maher), country acts (Kenny Rogers, Randy Travis, Wynonna), and Broadway-type shows (Cats).
