This art centre is conveniently located at the heart of North York. You may just zoom by and easily missed it. Pay parking locating behind the building. Easy access also by subway. There are a few large rooms in the building; the main theatre is great. We had Tafelmusik: A Bach Tapestry on Valentine's Day. Great orchestra, fantastic venue! There... More

This place has at least four theatres, a gallery, three bars, lots of spaces and the two main theatres are beautiful though George Westin is the best or my favourite with over 900 seats. Right on the subway line or there's underground parking for your connivence.

A great venue without the challenges of going downtown and with a good range of Acts suited to one of three auditoriums. What's playing can be hit or miss. Best to go with known artists and plays.

The seating is pretty good. However, there are some seats on the side aisles where the stage is half-blocked by someone in the row in front... More

Toronto Centre of Arts is for the Artist in you and others. Beautiful place to visit and see all about the history of arts. I enjoyed my visit there with my friends. Lots to see and do. You need at least 2 hours there to appreciate everything.
