“We are always on the lookout for the most exciting spectacles from our own backyard, and around the world, in order to represent the more than 200 cultures that co-exist in Toronto. Our mission is to unite the global citizens of Toronto through great artistic experiences.” - Dan Brambilla, CEO of the Sony Centre

Welcome to the Sony Centre, Canada’s largest soft seat theatre. The Sony Centre opened as the O’Keefe Centre on October 1, 1960, and has played host to a tremendous variety of international attractions and stars. The theatre, designated a historical site by the City of Toronto, recently underwent extensive renovations that restored the elegance and grandeur of the original O’Keefe Centre. Iconic features such as the theatre’s marquee canopy and York Wilson’s lobby mural “The Seven Lively Arts” were preserved. Restoration of the wood, brass and marble that were hallmarks of the original facility were undertaken, along with audience seating and flooring upgrades, new washrooms, and re-configured lobby spaces.

Audiences are invited to celebrate the Centre in a revitalized and re-invigorated facility in downtown Toronto - a nexus of arts, culture and technologies, where everyone is welcome.
