About Western Manitoba Centennial Auditorium

The Western Manitoba Centennial Auditorium was first mentioned during a city council meeting in 1953. In 1958 architects presented a set of plans for a civic centre which was to be a two storey building featuring a 1,200-seat auditorium on the main floor and a 600-seat banquet hall and convention centre on the second floor. In 1962, Manitoba's Premier Duff Roblin gave the city permission to proceed with plans to build an auditorium as a 1967 Centennial project and in 1964, the Manitoba Centennial Corporation announced a $300,000 grant towards the auditorium project. 

The project's total estimated cost was $450,000, and it was to be built on the Brandon College campus. On April 28, 1966 Mayor Magnacca unveiled a model, giving residents of Western Manitoba their first glimpse of the new auditorium.On May 30, 1967 the Centennial Commissioner John Fisher officially unveiled a sign announcing the location of the auditorium on Brandon College campus. Like a beautiful monument, the Western Manitoba Centennial Auditorium rose on the corner of Twentieth Street and Princess Avenue.
