Opened in 1991, the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto features a blend of the best concepts in theatre design from the last 200 years.
The theatre accommodates up to 2000 guests in comfortable seats, all of which are within 85 feet of one of the largest stages in the continent. There are three seating levels including two horseshoe shaped balconies.
The interior design is finely crafted with terrazzo floors, luminous mosaics of tile and glass, custom made light fixtures, much woodwork of a rare imported mahogany and 10,000 square feet of colourful murals by renowned artist Frank Stella. All of this was accomplished on a very compact plot of land in Toronto's entertainment district.
The Princess of Wales Theatre combines the best of both traditional and modern theatre design to provide an ideal setting to view your favourite play or musical production. For additional information about the Princess of Wales Theatre and upcoming concerts and events see the official website.

Clean and comfy theatre. Good sound. If you are here for a movie the screen is quite small given the size of the theatre. But with Tiff you don't exactly get to choose a theatre. Good experience overall.

Great live theatre space. Floor seats are the most comfortable. I don't recommend the balcony if you can avoid it.

TIFF !!! Amazing venue for the screenings! Although, the seats could be a bit larger. Besides that, it is a wonderful place, well located and beautiful!
