(#15) Performance Venues in Toronto: The Music Hall Theatre

The Music Hall

Located at 147 Danforth, at Broadview, The Music Hall Theatre is also known by the names The Music Hall, or The Danforth Music Hall.

The hall was the place where the Rumours of Glory concert film was shot, on 30 November and 1 December 1981. The 1,000 seat theatre was built in 1926 and has hosted concerts from acts as diverse as The Police, the Cowboy Junkies and James Brown.

In addition to concerts, the Hall also shows movies. In fact, it is primarily a cinema for second run, classic, and art movies these days and rarely has concerts. From the outside, at least, it appears the building could use some cosmetic refurbishing, especially considering its historic significance.

This page is part of The Cockburn Project, a unique website that exists to document the work of Canadian singer-songwriter and musician Bruce Cockburn. The Project archives self-commentary by Cockburn on his songs and music, and supplements this core part of the website with news, tour dates, and other current information.
