During TIFF, the hall concerts to a movie premier venue for big releases. Be sure to try and snag some tickets if you are in town during the festivities.

Average concert hall, nothing too special about the building itself. Often seen briefly in local TV shows like Traders or Earth Final Conflict

Concrete Chic. I'm into it as far as concert halls go. It's nice, small, intimate, and distinctive.
