The history behind the theatre
The Olde Walkerville Theatre was designed by Architect C. Howard Crane, who also designed Detroit’s Fox Theatre. The theatre officially opened its doors in September the 20th of 1920. Since its inception, it has been many thing, but it has continued to be a landmark building in the Olde Walkerville neighbourhood. We're thrilled to be returning the theatre back to its glory. This will be a work in progress and we look forward to the community support throughout the process. The venue is a one-of a kind in the area, in that it is capable of being a theatre or an entertainment venue - it can also cater for numerous needs with catering options coming from Lorelei's Bistro as well as other restaurants in the area.
