05T - Elgin Theatre & Winter Garden Lobby

24 May 2018 9:30 AM - 11:45 AM



2.0 ConEd Learning Hours

The Elgin and Winter Garden were built in 1913 as the Canadian flagship for the Loew's chain of vaudeville and photo play houses. The complex is unique in Canada in that it contains two complete theaters, built one above the other.  It was inspired by a short-lived experiment with double-decker theatres in New York in the early 1900s. This National Historic Site - the last operating double-decker theatre in the world - recounts the history and restoration of the complex.  Visit the orginal and new lobbies and the elegant Elgin Theatre. At present the tour will only include the Elgin Theatre and both theatre lobbies. Guests are not able to access inside the Winter Garden Theatre as there is a production.

All tours will depart from the MTCC, South Building lobby. Please gather at least 15 minutes prior to your tour time.
