When you first look at this building you think it looks dark and dingy, but when you walk in you can feel the culter and history it has. It is almost like the walls speak to you of all the events that have happened here...More

Great venue...All seats are good, intimate but not stuffy. A Toronto landmark and a perfect place to see a concert or performance.
