Corporate Event Space in Toronto

 
Are you looking for a unique space to hold a corporate event in the city? Too often, conferences, meetings, or team building events are held in concrete boxes with little personality or atmosphere. For your next event, why not look for a venue that offers a beautiful ambience? The Eglinton Grand can add elegance to any corporate function!
 

Heritage Landmark

 
The Eglinton Theatre was built in the 1930s in classic Art Deco style, and opened in 1936 as the most luxurious of Toronto’s movie palaces. Hailed as the "Show Place of Toronto”, the building went on to win the Royal Architecture Institute of Canada’s Bronze Medal for 1937. The Eglinton Theatre featured high ceilings and glittering chandeliers, original glass etchings and statuary, plush seating, details such as wainscoting, and mural art. Even the washrooms were elegant, featuring large anterooms and posh fixtures.
 
Many of the century’s best films played at the Eglinton, from The Jolson Story to Titanic. However, as the decades wore on, movie-going evolved, with multiplex cinemas replacing single-movie venues. The Eglinton kept its doors open until 2002, when Famous Players announced that it would no longer operate as a movie house.
 
Fortunately, the following year Dynamic Hospitality and Entertainment began restoring the building to its former glory. Replacing worn-out fixtures and furnishings with 1930s-style décor and adding fine accents of mahogany, ebony, and marble, the company created the perfect events venue, right in the heart of the city.
 
Renamed the Eglinton Grand, the facility boasts a welcoming lobby space, a two tiered mezzanine area, perfect for cocktails, which overlooks a large main ballroom. It also includes an intimate separate gallery space. The Eglinton Grand has been designated a landmark site. However, there is not an additional landmark fee.
