Tips from locals
This stacked theatre combination is the last remaining of its kind in the world, with the Winter Garden sitting some seven storeys above the Elgin. The hundred-year-old theatre got a new marquee with 1,240 light bulbs in 1995.
Built in 1913, this timeless theatre complex is the world's only remaining double-decker theatre, home to productions that draw international acclaim including Toronto International Film Festival.
Two beautifully restored theatres under one room . The upstairs Wintergarden Theatre is an intact vaudeville theatre that was closed and kept intact for many, many years. Tours avaialble.
The Winter Garden Theatre doesn't have a lot of shows played there anymore, but is stunning & well-worth seeing. They usually do small group tours. It's elaborately decorated like a forest, & was abandoned for 60 years.
