The theatre is a little out of the downtown. It’s a small theatre with nowhere to sit while waiting to be admitted to the theatre. The concession stand is small but serves a good variety of snacks. They are cash only though. The show was...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
