An Lanntair first opened 8th March 1985 in the former Council Chambers of Stornoway Town Hall, before the opening of the new-build Arts Centre in 2005.

The venue operates as an art gallery, theatre, cinema, a dance studio, a concert hall, and a platform for poetry and literature. The space can accommodate up to 220 people in a variety of configurations, has removable raked seating, and features a unique system which lifts the walls to the bar and restaurant, transforming the venue into an exciting space for larger events. The first performance at the centre was “I Was a Beautiful Day” by Iain Finlay MacLeod.

An Lanntair is Gaelic for “The Lantern”.
