Abandoned Ontario Theatre



abandoned theatre

This theatre closed approximately one decade ago. It dates back to the 1870's when it was in use as a factory. After the factory closed, the property remained abandoned for the next 26 years.

In the early 1900's the factory was converted into a theatre with 200 seats.





The theatre was the first in its city to feature soundtracks. It changed ownership several times until being purchased by Famous Players Corporation. Famous Players renovated the theatre.



After the theatre closed, it was sold to the CEO of a dance company. The company wasn't able to maintain the aging building and the building sold to the husband of the CEO. 

Plans for a condo tower have been proposed which include restoring the theatre.





As with many other explorers, entry into this location took repeated visits to check for a way inside. What might be locked one day, could be open the next. Sometimes kids leave a door open, other times it might be a forgetful employee. I waited over a year to get into this location and it did not disappoint.

I really hope that it's restored and not just demolished!
