CAA Ed Mirvish Theatre

CAA Ed Mirvish Theatre

Formerly the Canon Theatre, this elegantly restored 1920s vaudeville and motion picture palace was designed by the world famous architect Thomas Lamb. Named in Ed Mirvish’s honour, it remains a landmark in North American Theatre.

For over one hundred years, the CAA Ed Mirvish Theatre has been at the centre of Toronto’s popular entertainment scene. With a two-tiered auditorium that can be configured into 2300, 1800, or 1200 seats, it is a perfect venue for everything from intimate plays to large-scale musicals. It is located at 263 Yonge Street (just below Dundas Street); the main entrance and box office are located at the rear of the building, at 244 Victoria Street. Patrons with tickets may use either entrance, however those who have difficulty with stairs should come to Victoria Street where there is elevator access to the main lobby, box office and Orchestra seating level.
