Royal Alexandra Theatre

260 King St W, Toronto ON, M5V 1J2

The Royal Alexandra Theatre is a national historic landmark – the oldest continuously operating legitimate theatre in North America and the continent’s first truly “royal” theatre, granted official letters patent by Edward VII entitling it to the royal designation, along with his permission to name it after his consort, Alexandra. Built in 1907 by Cawthra Mulock (Toronto’s “boy millionaire”), and designed by John M Lyle, it is a masterpiece of beaux-arts architecture that also holds distinction as the city’s first steel-framed structure (allowing cantilevered balconies), one of the first “air-conditioned” buildings in North America, and the first theatre to be deemed legitimately “fireproof”. The proscenium-stage has seen almost 3400 productions since their opening and has been graced by such legendary performers as John Gielgud, Mary Pickford, the Marx Brothers, Edith Piaf, Paul Robeson… to name just a few. Monday 12:00pm to 6:00pm Tuesday 12:00pm to 8:30pm. Wednesday 11:00am – 6:00pm. Thursday & Friday 12:00pm to 8:30pm Saturday 11:00am – 8:30pm. Sunday 11:00am – 3:00pm.
