Brockville Arts Centre
When it first opened in 1858, the building that stood on the Brockville Arts Centre’s current location operated as a town hall, marketplace, and fire-engine house, making it the first-ever Swiss Army building. Only two bricks remain from that original structure, as the intervening 150 years saw numerous expansions and reconstructions, as well as a 1937 fire that destroyed the auditorium. From the ashes rose a motion-picture house called The Regent, which succumbed to the popularity of television 20 years later. In its place today stands an expansive centre for the local arts, thanks to a community-driven $2 million restoration. The Centre welcomes concerts, musicals, and comedians with the glow of its chandeliers, and though the movie theatre has long since closed, its 35-millimetre projectors remain, occasionally flickering to life for special screenings.
