The Ed Mirvish Theatre began its life in 1920 as a combination vaudeville and motion picture theatre in the Pantages theatre circuit. With its original 3373 seats, it was the largest cinema in Canada and, with its lavish interior - designed by the great theatre architect Thomas Lamb - the most elegant. David Mirvish officially renamed the iconic building The Ed Mirvish Theatre on December 6, 2011.

This beautiful venue has had a tumultuous history. It got its start as the Pantages Theatre in 1920, and its opulent design (by the famous theater architect Thomas Lamb) was widely admired. However, the theater's fortunes sank in 1929 -- not because of the stock-market crash, but because its owner was embroiled in a legal battle. Eventually, the gorgeous space was carved into six cinemas. It... more

Ed Mirvish Theatre
May 27, 2014

The shows are awesome, but the person who approved selling popcorn in the theatre should be fired! You will be listening to people behind you loudly chewing popcorn during the show. When they are finished the people beside you will start. I don't appreciate paying $130 for that! It makes Toronto low class uncultured city. I was very disappointed with... more

We will rock you
May 20, 2014

The show's name said it all. And rocked we were. It helps if you're a Queen fan but this is the third time for me and they keep changing performers and keeping it fresh. The theatre is like one from the past. Gloriously decorated but with comfortable seating. I'd just like to know who's brilliant idea it was to give... more

Not a bad seat in the Ed Mirvish Theatre, great for musicals
May 16, 2014

The Ed Mirvish Theatre is a spectacular venue to enjoy a musical. The sound is terrific, there are great views from wherever you sit. As long as you attend a musical you like, it's difficult to imagine anyone not enjoying the venue itself. I think some of the poorer reviews of the Mirvish forgets to differentiate between the venue and... more

Ideally situated opposite the Eaton Centre, the Ed Mirvish Theatre is billed as Toronto's finest vaudeville house in the 1920s. The façade has changed along with the players that take to its stage. Now, after being a comic theater house, motion picture palace and a contemporary cinema, it has been returned to the look that first made it famous. Canon Theater was formerly Pantages Theater.

The historic, 2,200-seat Canon Theatre began as a vaudeville and movie theatre in the 1920's. The then Pantages Theatre was the largest and most elegant motion picture theatre of its time. Throughout the year the ownership of the lavish theatre changed hands until a bitter rivalry between Famous Players and Cineplex Odeon let to an injunction forbidding the use of the theatre for motion... more
