Bloor St east of Bathurst     1919 vs 2020

Built on the north side of Bloor just east of Bathurst, the Madison Theatre opened on December 23rd, 1913. Followed by Allen’s, now known as Lee’s Palace, in 1919 and the Alhambra in 1920. The theatre saw success for decades until Twentieth Century Theatres took over and demolished it in 1940. A new theatre named the Midtown was built in its place.

Over the years the theatre would change hand multiple times. Name changes included the Capri, the Eden, the Bloor Theatre and most currently Bloor Hot Docs Cinema.
