The theatre was first opened in 1920 as a vaudeville and movie theatre in the Pantages theatre circuit. At the time, it had a seating capacity of 3373, and was the largest and most elegant cinema in Canada. It was originally named the Pantages Theatre, then the Imperial Theatre and later the Canon Theatre, until it was renamed in 2011 after Ed Mirvish, a well-known businessman and theatre impresario. The venue was listed on the City of Toronto Heritage Property Inventory in 1979, and in 1988, the theatre gained heritage protection, as it was designated under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act.

Opens October 27

Perhaps best known for his quirky choice of movie roles in the 1990s with turns in Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Scream and Never Been Kissed, Hollywood actor David Arquette is set to take on the role of the greatest detective that ever graced the pages of a book, Sherlock Holmes. Indeed it may seem an atypical casting choice, given the recent resurgence of Holmes fever (we're looking at you Mr. Cumberbatch), but Arquette is ready to put his own spin on the legendary gentleman of mystery, wryly stating "Some may think I'm an odd choice," he said. "I am. I'm odd, but thankfully so is he."
