The Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre Centre was built in 1913 as a double-decker complex, with the Winter Garden Theatre constructed seven storeys above the Elgin Theatre. Now a National Historic Site and the world’s last operating double-decker theatre complex, the centre reopened in 1989 after an extensive 2-1/2 year renovation and restoration project. It is now a multi-purpose venue hosting a variety of musicals, dramas, operas, concerts and screenings. The Elgin and Winter Garden Theatres have hosted the Toronto International Film Festival each September for over 20 years and Ross Petty Productions’ annual family musical celebrated its 24th year at the Centre in December of 2019.
