ONE OF CANADA’S OLDEST CINEMAS, DATING BACK TO 1911, HAS RE-OPENED AT 1035 GERRARD ST. E.

I’ve always believed that the best neighbourhoods have movie theatres in them. This one, in TORONTO’s East End, was brought back to life this year, and renamed The Grand Gerrard Theatre – the latest in a series of names, including the Bonita, the Athenium, the Sri Lakshmi, the Gerrard, the Wellington, and the Projection Booth.<The theatre was once used as a New & Used Auto Parts storage facility>

<The Athenium screened Greek movies>

<The Gerrard – equipped for Dolby Digital>

<Lining up for The Projection Booth>

<Re-opening as the Grand Gerrard Theatre in March/2019>

During its long career, the 520-seater was opened, closed and renovated several times. After recently lying dormant for three years, it’s come back yet again. The staff is currently booking special events, film screenings, live music, comedy, performance art, film/photo shoots, podcasts and more.
