Previous Names: Photodrome
The first of two cinemas in Toronto that ended their days as motion picture theaters named Ace Theater opened originally as the Photodrome in 1915, built by a Mr. Athole George Robertson. Its initial screen was made of plaster with a black border shading into browns on the theater’s interior sidewalls. It was known in its early years for showing films made in Toronto.
By 1941 it had been renovated and renamed the Ace Theater. It closed in 1945, and its vertical sign, consisting of the word ‘ACE’ with the letters in circles on top of each other, was placed on what had been the Iola Theater on Danforth.
The Simpson Tower now occupies the site.
