Cameo Theatre – Once in Pape Village

Posted:

Cameo Theatre was once located at 989 Pape Ave (at Floyd Ave on the southeast corner, north of Danforth Ave) in the Pape Village neighbourhood of Toronto.

Built in 1934, architects Kaplan & Sprachman designed the 743-seat theatre in the Art Deco style. It closed in the late-1950s.

Today, the former theatre building is home to retail space.
