Photo #171 - Allan Gardens

Allan Gardens is a park and indoor botanical garden in Toronto. The garden and the main part of the property was donated by George William Allan, a one-time Mayor of Toronto and long-time Senator. The park, one of the city's oldest (since 1858), is bounded by Jarvis Street on the west, Sherbourne Street on the east, Carlton Street on the north and Gerrard Street East on the south.In the centre of the park is a Victorian conservatory known as the Palm House, built in 1909 to replace the pavilion burned in 1902. Rare tropical plants from all over the globe are nurtured inside. Admission is free. The trees in the park represent the northern tip of the Carolinian forest with species such as black cherry, American beech, red oak, sugar maple and sassafras. Most are over one hundred years old. The park is home to three varieties of squirrel, the gray, the black, and, unique to this park, the red tailed black squirrel. The park is also home to the city's largest flock of pigeons, a roving peregrine falcon and a statue of Robert Burns.The University of Toronto greenhouse (1931) was moved to the site.

Photo #173 - Canon Theatre

The Canon Theatre began as the Pantages Theatre in 1920 as a combination vaudeville and motion picture house. Designed by the great theatre architect Thomas W. Lamb, it was the largest cinema in Canada (originally having 3373 seats) and one of the most elegant. The "new" 2200-seat Pantages reopened in 1989 with the first legitimate theatre production it had ever known, Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical The Phantom of the Opera, which starred Colm Wilkinson and Rebecca Caine and played at the Pantages for more than a decade. In July, 2001, Live Nation announced a pledge of support for the theatre from Canon Canada, Inc. In recognition of this pledge, which guaranteed the continued life and health of this important, historic and beautiful showplace, the theatre was been renamed the Canon Theatre.

Total seats (1920): 3373; (2005): 2295
Seating: mezzanine, orchestra and boxes
Entrance: 244 Victoria Street
Secondary Entrance: 263 Yonge Street
Owner: Key Brand Entertainment/Dancap Productions
Managed by: Mirvish Productions

Photo #176 - Filmport

Filmport is a major film studio project in Toronto. When completed it will be the largest film studio in the city, and the first in Toronto capable of accommodating large blockbuster movies that previously could not film in Toronto. The studio is designed to accommodate the production of five simultaneous mid sized feature films, or two massive projects. The largest soundstage will be 4,000 square metres. When completed, it will be the largest soundstage in the world. There will also be six smaller soundstages. The studio will also house an array of office space and ancillary services. The most notable planned structure for the site is the office and event space designed by British architect Will Alsop, best known in Toronto for the unique design of OCAD's expansion. Initial work on the complex began in August 2006 and the first phase opened on August 20, 2008. The second phase of the project is slatted for completion is 2010. The entire project will cost some $275 million. The Toronto International Film Festival also started yesterday. From Tony Bock of the Toronto Star.

Sorry for the delay. With university starting I've had some things to do first. I probably won't be posting daily anymore, but still frequently.

Photo #178 - Sam the Record Man

Sam the Record Man is a Canadian record store chain that, at one time, was Canada's largest music recording retailer, with 130 stores. The Internet age, the competition with the powerful HMV (HMV stores lowering prices in stores near Sam the Record Man locations) and other factors, forced the chain into bankruptcy on October 30, 2001, although its flagship location remained in business until 2007. The chain was first launched in 1937 by Sam Sniderman, as a record department in his family's existing radio store in Toronto.[1] In 1961, the store moved out to its own location on Yonge Street, and its location at 347 Yonge Street has become a Toronto landmark. The Yonge Street location was always noted for its kitschy signage. On January 18, 2008, Ryerson University officially acquired the property for future expansion of its nearby campus. Taken by SimonP on wikipedia.
