Enwave Theatre (formerly Harbourfront Centre Theatre)
231 Queens Quay West, Toronto, ON M5J 2G8
Originally an historical ice-house facility constructed in 1926, this building was redesigned and transformed into an impressive and versatile 425-seat venue. The theatre first opened in 1992 to feature theatre, music, dance and performance art by many local and international groups. The sleek, three-storey facility is encased by glass on three sides and equipped with dressing rooms, high quality sound and lighting equipment, acoustical devices, and a sophisticated heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. The theatre is also suitable for fashion shows, CD launches, and corporate conferences.
Harbourfront Centre is a year-round facility, featuring concerts, dance performances, readings, films and kids' shows every weekend and many week nights throughout the year. The centre puts a large emphasis on culturally diverse acts, and the corporate community's involvement enables an incredible draw of international talent. Harbourfront Centre has 12 major venues for music, dance and cultural events, in and around two major multi-use buildings. The Queens Quay Terminal houses a wide variety of shops and services. The York Quay Centre houses an art gallery, installations, the Lakeside Terrace, a patio and an information booth. There is also a large pond that doubles as a seasonal, outdoor skating rink.
