Below is a map of the ‘nabes, movie palaces, theatoriums and nickel shows that have graced Toronto streets, store-fronts and alley-ways since the first flicker of the Lumiere Cinematograph in 1896, many of which have been profiled at Silent Toronto.
Zoom in and click on the markers — you’ll find basic info on the theatres as well as links to features and opening night ads. The map was created as a means to aggregate our website’s content; after four years of articles, stuff easily gets buried.
Sources for opening/closing dates are from various Toronto newspapers (Star, G&M, Telegram, Star Weekly, Sunday World).
