The Olde Walkerville Theatre is open to the public this weekend and we’ve taken a look inside the nearly century-old gem.
Owner of neighbouring Lorelei’s Bistro, Mary Lambros, purchased and took possession of the theatre on July 19th. The theater has since undergone renovations with plans to hold neighbourhood events, fundraisers, mystery dinner theatre, a CBC town hall and much much more.
The theatre debuted in 1918 as “The Walkerville Theatre” and was designed by the same architect who created Detroit’s Fox Theatre and Music Hall. The theatre was also known as the “Tivoli Theatre” from the 1930′s onward and showed movies along with stage performances.
