News About This Theater
Designed by Kaplan and Sprachman, the Eglinton Theatre was opened on April 15, 1936 with Jack Oakie in “King of Burlesque”. It was operated by Famous Players throughout its cinematic life.
After the Ontario Human Rights Commission fought and won a lawsuit to make it wheelchair accessable, Famous Players decided to close this beautiful Art Deco style theatre in 2003.
The Eglinton Theatre has now been renovated into a rental hall for banquets and special events and has been renamed the “Eglinton Grand.”
