Music Hall

This is the Danforth Music Hall, a music and event venue,  located on Danforth Ave. It originally opened in 1919 as a movie theatre and was so until 2004 when it closed until 2006. It then opened and closed a few times until new owners took over in 2011 and renovated and continue to operate it now. The building was given heritage protection in 1985.

It's a good use for an old theater. I remember seeing movies in theaters like this, balcony, back row!

It reminds me so much of buildings in my home town in Illinois.

That is a better use of it than what happened to the Runnymede.

A lovely old building. I'm glad that lots of people think the same and it is being protected.

None of those names are known to me, but they could be interesting.

Given how many people cherish these old theaters, it's a wonder why they can't be more profitable.

That is a fine looking marque on this theater. Good to know it is still operating.

Catalyst said...

That looks like one of those false fronts. Is there really a building behind it?

Kay said...

Old places like this one are endangered. I can't imagine it's easy to compete with streaming and such.

Hello,

It could be my old neighborhood theater. It is nice the building is in use as a dance hall. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

Jenn said...

Love seeing heritage buildings in use still!

Glad it was saved and a music venue is a good use for the space.

I am always happy when I see old movie theatres reused and repurposed. It would be a shame to waste the space.
