Walkerville Theatre....SOLD by Linda Goodhue

The Walkerville Theatre did actually sell last year, but the buyer changed their mind and the theatre is back on the market. Linda Goodhue said at the time of taking this photo last year:

This is a 3 exposure HDR Image, tonemapped, post processing with a subtle texture.

A 90-year-old Walkerville landmark has been sold. The Walkerville Theatre, which was also called the Tivoli Theatre at one time, has been largely vacant for the past five years except for a few special events and recently underwent extensive renovations.

The Walkerville was designed by C. Howard Crane in 1918, and built in 1920. At that time, it sat on the border between the town of Walkerville and the city of Windsor, of which Walkerville later became part of.

Originally a venue for vaudeville, it later converted to showing movies. In 1930, it was renamed the Tivoli and received an Art Deco style facade. The theater closed in 1963 and later served as a bingo hall. In 2000, it was converted into a gay nightclub called Life which closed in around 2004.
