The Heritage Toronto Awards held this week included The Paradise Theatre. The awards program highlights the key role of heritage in city building, recognizing extraordinary contributions to Toronto’s heritage.
The Craftsmanship Award recognizes the use of construction techniques and materials that are compatible to the building’s original architectural qualities. It was won by The Paradise Theater. You can see some of the before shots on the Urban Toronto website.
It was won by the Paradise Theatre– located at 1006 Bloor Street West–for the reimagining the early 20th-century cinema by ERA Architects inspired by its Art Deco design by Benjamin Brown, who was one of the earliest Jewish architects in Toronto. The 1937 heritage-designated landmark has been transformed into a thriving creative hub and community amenity. (Urban Toronto, Oct 20, 2021)
