While the weather in Toronto is usually fair, having indoor activities is the difference in feeling restless and making the best of a stray rainstorm. This Toronto indoor activities guide offers ideas to chase the “stuck inside” blues away. For many in Toronto, movies are always a winner and Toronto dance studios often have their own productions as well.
The Royal Alexandra Theatre is always a popular choice. This grand theatre was built to house close to 1,500 seats and two balcony levels. Construction on the theatre was completed in 1907. Since then it has put on some of the most memorable shows in Toronto, as well as contributed to the overall French and Canadian artistic movement. This theatre has even been visited by the royal family from England. The Royal Alexandra was named a National Historic Monument in 1987 to mark its 80th birthday.
The sole purpose behind the theatre construction was to attract more to beautiful Toronto. Since its construction in 1907, the theatre has remained opened, even as other theatres have fell to the wayside. Not only is it a beautiful sight to see with its elegant French architecture, but there remain many popular shows on tour, “Back Beat”, which, as many know, is the fascinating story of the Beatles. Ticket prices vary depending on the vicinity of the seats to the stage.
There are few things more culturally rewarding than catching one of these Toronto shows. Consider adding a stop during your travels and catch one of these extravagent productions. If one is looking for this theatre at night, it’s difficult to miss. The awe-inspiring, illuminated theatre can be seen from anywhere in downtown Toronto. Just sitting in this elegant and sophisticated theatre inspires images of divine living and pure royalty.
