Seventy-four years old and still the favourite cinema in town, so kudos to Empire Theatres for giving the place a facelift this summer, with fresh paint perking up the facade. Known primarily as an art house, it’s the perfect room to watch a new Woody Allen picture (Midnight in Paris did gangbusters there this summer) or distinguished Oscar bait (The King’s Speech had people lining up around the block for weeks).
A reader loves a big, single screen cinema. Don't we all?
“How this little Art Deco jewel has dodge the wrecker ball of some corrupt Toronto condo developer continues to amaze and please me.”
