The CAA Theatre was completely rebuilt in 2005. It is an entirely new venue and is an extremely intimate space, with the last row in the balcony only 85 feet from the stage. The 700 seats are split between the orchestra (427) and balcony (273) levels, allowing a production to use one or both. The theatre is just right for small productions, comedy, concerts, graduations, press conferences, lectures and meetings.
The CAA Theatre is located in downtown Toronto on Yonge St, just south of Bloor St., with available parking garages and within walking distance of public transportation (TTC), the boutiques and galleries of Yorkville, the fashionable shopping of Bloor West and Church Street, the Royal Ontario Museum and the campus of University of Toronto.

The CAA Theatre is a modern building with two seating levels (Orchestra and Balcony). The main level is accessible, including automated doors at the front entrance (651 Yonge Street), access to box office, coat check, bar and concession services, and merchandise sales. Private barrier-free restroom facilities are located on the Basement and Balcony Lobby levels, which are both accessible by the lobby elevator.
Wheelchair accessible, special access and bariatric seating are available on the Orchestra level. The Balcony level has some seating options for bariatric and special access seating, but is not suitable for guests requiring wheelchair accessible seating.
The theatre is equipped with the Sennheiser infrared assisted listening system which requires use of headsets that are available to borrow, free of charge (advance reservation required).
