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.
