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.
