From the theatre to the symphony, movies to the fine arts, some of Toronto’s most exciting (and often controversial) buildings are those designed to house the city’s cultural institutions. This two-hour walking tour by the Toronto Society of Architecture starts at the north end of David Pecaut Square on King Street, directly across from the Royal Alexandra Theatre, and ends at the Art Gallery of Ontario. It takes place on Saturdays.
Along the way, participants will learn about the origins of the world’s third largest English speaking theatre district and visit the epicentre of one of the largest international film festivals in the world. Highlights include the TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) Bell Lightbox and the Sharp Centre at Ontario College of Art & Design University.
