The Walkerville Theatre was designed by architect C. Howard Crane in 1918, and built in 1920. At that time, it sat on the border between the town of Walkerville and the city of Windsor, of which Walkerville later became part of.
Originally a venue for vaudeville, it later converted to showing movies. In 1930, it was renamed the Tivoli Theatre and received an Art Deco style facade.
The theatre closed in 1963 and later served as a bingo hall.
In 2000, it was converted into a gay nightclub called ‘Life’ which closed in around 2004.
Since then new owners of the building carried out plans for use as a performing arts centre and renovations were completed in 2014.
