Officially recognized as a major venue for the performing arts, the Centre boasts two top-notch performance spaces. The main theatre is an 840-seat hall that presents major shows by leading local and visiting artists. Espace Alcoa is a multi-purpose venue that can accommodate up to 500 people, depending on whether the places are cabaret-style, bleachers or standing room. The Baie-Comeau Arts Centre also houses a branch of the Alice Lane Library, as well as regional music and dance organizations. See website for details.
