Also known as Walkers Theatre (after its original owner), this place is a true witness to Canada's fine arts. For over 100 years, Burton Cummings Theatre for the Performing Arts has hosted live theater, vaudeville, concerts, and silent films.

A part of the Manitoba Theatre Centre (MTC), the Warehouse Theatre offers an additional stage facility. Officially known as the Tom Hendry Warehouse, the venue is administered by the MTC. This Warehouse Theatre hosts a variety of theatrical plays, dramas and similar acts, and it also stages live events. Furnished with state of the art audio facilities, this place with a seating capacity for around three-hundred people is the most preferred choice for local gatherings and festivals.
A marvel in itself, the fascinating Rainbow Stage would not have existed if the Winnipeg's Musician Association would not have come together for the necessity of an event stage. A result of experimental architecture, the Rainbow Stage was built in 1952 as an outdoor stage for theater and music concerts. The assembly of lights put on center stage resembled a rainbow and so this incidental wonder came to be known as the Rainbow Stage. This ecstatic stage set in open air, has been playing a host to various important events since then and has been witnessing a crowd not less than 2600. Music concerts, large scale live performances, massive fairs and festivals, are all a frequent happening at this notable attraction of Winnipeg.
