Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre Centre

During Doors Open, take a closer look at the historical Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre Centre – the last operating double-decker theatre facility in the world. These stacked Vaudevillian-era theatres were saved from demolition in 1981 by the Ontario Heritage Trust. Volunteers will answer questions as you explore the building. No food or beverages allowed. Photography permitted (no tripods).
