Toronto may be a city of neighbourhoods, but it is also a city of theatre, and those who miss out on seeing a show or two, would miss one of the better parts of the city. The interior of this theatre alone makes this a...More

An afternoon to remember, a real treat from my daughter. Great seats and the show was outstanding! The " Bodyguard " was fabulous and I enjoyed the staging and the music was the best. The actual theatre was in all it's glory.

If you get a chance to see a show at this amazing old theatre, don't miss it. It is truly ornate and an architectural marvel. The seats are comfy and make seeing a play here a pleasure.

We attended the matinée performance of Sousatzka at the Elgin on Sunday and were very pleased with the musical and overall performance. It was our first venture to the Elgin and will not be our last

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
