Declared a national historic site in 1982, this structure represents the last stacked Edwardian theater in the world, meaning one theater on top of the other. It was built in 1913 as the first of the Loews vaudeville theatre chain. Located downstairs, the 1,500-seat Elgin Theatre makes for a lavish gathering with royal boxes and charming gilded plaster details. The upstairs 1,000-seat Winter Garden features trompe-l'oeil paintings of pastoral scenes and a spectacular fireproof garden hanging from the roof. Catch some of the most awaited theater productions at this spectacular venue.
Home to the Canadian Opera Company, the Four Seasons Center for the Performing Arts is a gorgeous building both inside and out. The exterior features a glass wall allowing light to shine in or out depending on the time of day, and the inside is a spectacular open space with four balconies. It also houses the longest free-spanning glass staircase in the world. Besides being beautiful, it is also quite functional with the main room holding over 2,000 spectators. The smaller amphitheater provides free shows throughout the year.
Its curved exterior and sloping glass awning, reflective in daylight and transparent in twilight, make this concert hall one of Toronto's distinctive downtown landmarks and is located almost directly opposite the Royal Alexandra and The Princess of Wales theaters. The hall is also home to both the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir. Since opening in 1982, hundreds of touring musicians and entertainers have performed here to appreciative crowds. Even though it seats 2,812, no one is further than 32 meters (104.98 feet) from the stage.
