Centre Theatre, originally Duchess – Once in Trinity-Bellwoods

Posted:

Centre Theatre, originally the Duchess, was once located at 772 Dundas St W (at Markham St on the northwest corner) in the Trinity-Bellwoods neighbourhood of Toronto.

Around 1940, the Duchess was renamed Centre Theatre.

The theatre was demolished, and today, the newer building is home to retail space.
