Theatre Events

The John W. H. Bassett Theatre is our impressive performing arts centre – one that might look familiar. We’ve hosted a number of televised events in the theatre, including the Gemini Awards, the NHL Awards, So You Think You Can Dance Canada auditions, and the Canadian Idol competition.

This 1,232-seat theatre is a luxury for audience members, with barrier-free design, a stunning entrance and lobby, plush seats, and soft, muted acoustics. But it’s not just your audience that will be impressed. With full backstage facilities and optimal technical abilities, as well as technical support specialists, everyone involved in producing your event in our theatre will be delighted.

While our theatre is ideal for performing arts events, the space also provides an ideal dramatic setting for keynote presentations, product launches, and award shows.

Our central location is also exceptionally convenient, with abundant parking, as well as easy access from both TTC and GO transit systems.
