Beautiful performance space perfect for theatre, concerts, filming, corporate events and receptions. Maximum capacity 185 people. Two levels. Full bar. Dressing and green rooms.

The building was originally a bakery built in 1902 and has served several purposes over the decades. When Theatre Passe Muraille took the building over, it had fallen under disrepair and large renovations were undertaken to bring the building up to the required standards. A second round of renovations began in 1983, the most important additions of which were the building of a large cruciform opening in the floor of the second storey and the installation of a lighting grid. The space was designated a historic building in 1977 by the Toronto Historical Board under the Ontario Heritage Act.
