Since its construction in the 1940s, the Clova has been in varying states of repair. At the time of the closing of its doors as a movie theatre, the Clova was in need of significant care.
A restoration and renovation project was initiated in 2015. This included a heritage conservation plan, put together by Donald Luxton & Associates, INC. to ensure the restoration process would be in keeping with the heritage of the building and the surrounding area.
The interior of the Clova has undergone a complete renovation. The lobby expanded, washrooms added and expanded, all new seating, a reconfigured multi-purpose stage for presentations, concerts and other events, as well as an updated sound and digital projection system.
In the coming months, the exterior of the Clova will begin to see changes as we work to repair and restore this Cloverdale landmark.
