Kosher Event Spaces in Toronto

Are you looking for the perfect venue for your engagement party or wedding? Do you have a son or daughter preparing for their bar or bat mitzvah? Are your parents observing a landmark anniversary? Is there a milestone birthday that needs to be commemorated? Or do you have a career or personal achievement to celebrate? There are many venues that offer kosher catering – but if you’re on the search for the best kosher event space in Toronto, be sure to consider the Eglinton Grand.

A Glorious Past

The Eglinton Theatre opened as the country’s most luxurious movie palace in 1936. Hailed as the "Show Place of Toronto”, the theatre was designed in classic art déco style. A huge lighted marquee marked the entrance. The interior featured high ceilings and glistening chandeliers, hand-carved marble statues, murals etched in glass, plush seating, and richly woven fabrics. Even the washrooms were grand in design, with spacious anterooms and luxurious fixtures. The Eglinton Theatre won the Royal Architecture Institute of Canada’s Bronze Medal for 1937, and has been designated one of Toronto’s historical landmarks.
The venue operated as a movie theatre until 2002, when the competition from megaplex cinemas forced it to close. Shortly afterward, however, the space was lovingly restored to 1930s glamour and re-imagined as an events venue. For several years the revitalized Eglinton Grand has been host to special life events and corporate functions.
