"Women of the Braveheart"
Designed by Architect, Alfred Henry Jacobs, it was to be a place of friendly assemblage, blended with its magnificent surroundings, not to be commercial in nature, in essence to be more than just a theatre to the community.
A redwood architectural marvel, originally had seating for 600 patrons. It is 128 feet long, 58 feet wide and 45 feet high.
Spared from fire in 1992 and renovated in 2000-2002 with new seating, lights, sound system and 2000 square foot dance floor. The Wi'ne'ma Theatre has constantly been used as a place of friendly assemblage and pride of the Scotia Community.
