ABOUT THIS THEATRE

Description
The Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre Centre is one of the most beautiful theatre complexes in the world. And it is the last operating double-decker theatre in the world -- with two completely separate and distinctive theatres. The Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre Centre, a National Historic Site owned and operated by the Ontario Heritage Trust, is located in the heart of downtown Toronto, close to shopping, accommodations and public transit, with ample parking facilities within walking distance. The Centre is dedicated to providing theatre-goers with the best in Canadian and international entertainment -- from musicals, comedies and concerts to dramas, operas and films. It also offers an excellent opportunity to combine special events and corporate entertaining with attendance at one of our great performances -- an evening to remember for you and your guests. One of the Centre's greatest treasures, discovered during the restoration, is the world's largest collection of vaudeville scenery -- hand-painted flats and drops dating from 1913. Three restored pieces, including the magnificent Butterfly and Scarab Scenery Flats, are on display.
