  • Orchestra Toronto 2012
    Orchestra Toronto's inaugural 1955 season got right to the point. It had, after all, only one concert. That concert, however, made such an impact that the dedicated 55-member company, then known as The Bennington Heights Community Orchestra, continued to perform works alongside a string of renowned conductors until 1998, when it put its magical rings together and morphed into Orchestra Toronto. The largest distinction between Orchestra Toronto and other companies: it's truly a community project, corralling volunteer musicians to make up its 80-member team and deliver everything from Mendelssohn symphonies to flamenco concerts.

  • Magic Lantern Theatre–Carlton Cinema
    At Magic Lantern Theatres, darkened auditoriums with flickering screens draw audiences into magical worlds where fish can talk, motorcycles leap canyons, and love comes even for those who eat crackers in bed. The partnering multiplex theatres and cinemas show recently released blockbuster flicks at 15 locations spread across Canada, each of which retains its own unique personality and honours any historic roots. In Edmonton, the Princess Theatre’s original 1915 auditorium, complete with balcony, golden drapes, and red walls, accommodates moviegoers with babies or pet hyenas inside a soundproof cry room. In Saskatchewan, the circa-1930 Roxy Theatre preserves the ambience of a Spanish courtyard. As guests find their auditoriums at the Ontario locations, they can admire giant murals by local artist Fred Harrison.

  • Revue Cinema
    Established: Before 1950 Staff Size: 2?10 people Average Duration of Services: 2?4 hours Brands Used: Pepsi Pro Tip: Box office opens 30 minutes before showtime. Arrive early to get the best seat. Handicap Accessible: No Parking: Metered street parking Recommended Age Group: All Ages For Susan Flanagan, the Revue Cinema was almost a lost cause. Back in 2006, the theatre had all but shuttered its doors, and was on the brink of closing down for good. Susan hit the streets and pounded the porches in the neighborhood, sold "Save the Revue" t-shirts and buttons, wrote press releases, and did just about everything in her power to raise enough money to keep the theater going. In the processes, she effectively recruited a battalion of volunteers?Revue Film Society?who not only helped with funding, but dedicated their collective manpower to help clean, paint, and even create new art deco light fixtures for the theater for its grand re-opening. Today, Revue Cinema?a not-for-profit theatre?screens films that range from blockbuster hits to cult classics. In addition to showing new releases, the staff arranges a series of cultural programs such as Silent Sundays, where live piano accompaniment adds vim to North American and European films from the 1910s and 1920s. And in addition to the movies, the snack bar sets the bar for other theatres by selling organic juices and vintage-style pop and candy.
