Eclipse Theatre – Once in Regent Park

Posted:

The Eclipse Theatre was once located at 387-389 Parliament St (south of Gerrard St E on the east side) in the Cabbagetown/Regent Park neighbourhood of Toronto.

From the city directory and newspaper articles, the theatre opened in 1914. The theatre building was torn down in the early 1950s for the Regent Park development.
