About Fox Theatre
In 1913, Arthur Brooks Webster had a problem: he had just been issued a permit to build his theatre, but the local residents were already content with the two theatres just down the road. However, by promising a moviegoing experience unlike any other and rallying his friends to spread a petition door-to-door, Webster gained the support he needed to break the earth on his vision. Though the theatre’s first reel spun in 1914, it took years of cycling through names such as The Pastime and Prince Edward before it finally received its current, more svelte moniker in 1937.
Fast-forward to the present day, and the Fox Theatre stands as the longest-running cinema in Canada. First- and second-run films flicker to life on the big screen as enamoured audiences watch on from rows of plush red seats. Aside from the classic moviegoing experience, the theatre may be rented to seat up to 248 spectators for parties, corporate events, and screenings of independent documentaries about the funding channels for independent documentaries.
