The newly renovated Sony Centre For The Performing Arts re-opened its doors to the public Oct. 1, 2010.
Following two years of renovations, the Sony Centre For The Performing Arts, in downtown Toronto, re-opened its doors on Oct. 1 – 50 years to the day of the venue’s original opening night.
The first phase of the extensive $30-million renovation project included wood, bronze and marble restoration, along with improved audience seating, new washrooms, a new catering kitchen and a reconfigured lobby space housing a new art gallery and balcony bar.
Sony Canada provided state-of-the-art technology throughout the venue.
The Sony Centre For The Performing Arts is Canada’s largest soft-seat theatre with a capacity of nearly 3,200.
The 50th anniversary season opens with iD, a spectacle that weaves together hip hop, breakdance, BMX bikes and 10 circus disciplines. It runs until Oct. 9.
