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.

20 years after Riverdance first took the world's breath away with its explosive combination of traditional Irish music and dance, Michael Flatley's fine footwork continues to evolve, captivating audiences from East to West as its fan base grows steadily. This remarkable progression now culminates in a 20th Anniversary World Tour, heralding the company's triumphant return to the world stage.

Return To Grace

May 31-June 12, 2016

Steve Michaels is one of the world's most talented Elvis impersonators; in fact, he's so good, he has been continually playing The Man From Memphis in various shows for the past 20 or so years. Return to Grace sees Michaels in full-on leather-clad sex symbol mode in this sterling tribute show that serves a simple premise - it's all about the impersonation, not interpretation. Don't expect a drawn-out backstory to Presley, this show is all about the splendor, the songs and the raw sex appeal that saw The King attain cultural icon status that still holds true today.
