Located next to West Vancouver Secondary School, the Kay Meek Centre contains a 500 seat Main Theatre and a smaller "black box" Studio Theatre. The facility is easily accessed from Mathers Avenue, or from the large parking lot located off Inglewood.

The Main Theatre seating is in continental formation, with aisles on the far right and far left sides, extra deep rows, and accommodation for six wheelchairs. Sightlines are excellent with seats positioned “straight on” to the stage.

The sound and light controls are contained in one booth, at the back of the auditorium. The stage is sprung for dancers and the apron folds down to reveal an orchestra pit.

The Studio Theatre, the style of which is often referred to as a “black box”, is designed for the most flexibility of usage. The primary bank of bleacher-style seating can be retracted to open the room and provide full floor surface. The standard set-up is 152 seats; additional seating increases the capacity to 216 seats.
