St Lawrence Centre Location & Features
The St Lawrence Center for the Arts is located downtown Toronto, Canada and owned as well as operated by the non-profit corporation Friends of the St. Lawrence Church; an organization brought to life in 1966 to restore the historic St. Lawrence Church and return it to use an arts center. The performing arts theatre complex sits on Front Street just one block east of Yonge Street, radiating its centennial appeal which commemorates the 1967 Canadian Centennial. The $2.6 million event center is the masterpiece of Gordon S. Adamson and Associates. Apart from being the ideal place for all the dramatic displays one can find in Canada, St. Lawrence Center of the Arts also makes as the perfect venue for all kinds of private functions. To execute these events many turn to Pure AV as the preferred St Lawrence Centre For The Arts Audio Visual Provider for lighting, audio & video gear.
For corporate or individual needs, the center offers a variety of spaces to impeccably match the demands of hosts alongside set-ups to give guests the best reception and entertainment. Paintings, drawings, carvings and brilliant works of art are scattered all around the venue, giving you the full impression that the place reeks of creativity. One unique thing about the theatre complex is its peculiarly charming ambiance, seating arrangement, stage lighting and a semi-circular thrust stage perfect for solo speaking productions and top-notch audio-visual presentations.
Capacity and Catering
The complex which opened on February 2nd, 1970 – which was eight years after it’s construction commenced – originally housed a 483-seat Town hall and 863-seat theatre.
The Town Hall was given a new name to honor the memory of Canadian actress Jane Mallett in November 1984, used mostly for recitals, chamber concerts, public debates, stage and film presentations, but still a no-brainer for corporate hostings. There are also restaurants and bars within the venue. Other facilities include washrooms, a coat check and a lobby where there is a private lounge that can accommodate up to 30 guests. The features backstage include a production office and nine dressings that each have their own washrooms.
There is also a mirrored rehearsal hall which measures 1,200 sq ft with a sprung floor and piano, making it perfect for pre-show formalities. Accompanying the rehearsal room is a Green Room for cast relaxation. Amalgamating activity, entertainment, cultural enrichment, social interaction, renovation and investment that serve both the surrounding Munjoy Hill neighborhoods, the St. Lawrence Center for the Arts brings a lively feel to the residents of the Greater Portland.
