The Rickshaw Theatre, formerly known as the Shaw Theatre, was built in 1971 as part of the Shaw Brothers' (Sir Run Run Shaw and Tan Sri Runme Shaw) worldwide movie empire. By the mid 1970's, Shaw Brothers' movie empire blossomed to 230 cinemas including the one at 254 East Hastings, Vancouver. Centrally located between the neighbourhoods of Chinatown and Strathcona, The Shaw Theatre in Vancouver was the west coast hub for all of the Shaw Brothers' North American business operations and distribution. The theatre itself was the west coast crown in the Shaw Brothers' theatre empire and featured the most modern movie technology of the time including a 10,000 square foot theatre room, dolby sound and cinema-scope screens. But by the mid eighties, the Shaw Theatre closed its doors as interest in the Kung-Fu movie genre waned. The theatre sat more or less dormant until David Duprey reopened it as a live music venue in 2009 and renamed the theatre Rickshaw Theatre. Realizing that the Rickshaw has the potential for being an outstanding music venue, Mo Tarmohamed came on board in the summer of 2011 followed by Stephen Lyons to help run the operations. The theatre boasts possibly the best sight-lines of any music venue in the city as well as a quality sound system and the capacity can be easily configured to accommodate 200 to 600 people. The re-opening of the theatre also marks an important step in the ongoing revitalization of the Downtown Eastside.
