Did you get more pics at the Brickworks? I have not been there this summer, and just love it. I must put it on my "To Do" list...

Photo #209 - Chapters Runnymede

Runnymede Theatre was a playhouse located in Bloor West Village, an affluent west end Toronto neighbourhood. In 1999, it ceased its operations as a movie theatre to become a Chapters bookstore. Its original address, before Chapters' takeover, was 2223 Bloor Street West, at the southwest corner of Runnymede Road.

Commonly known as the "Runny", the Runnymede was built in June, 1927 by the Capitol (later Famous Players) as an atmospheric vaudeville theatre, first of this type in Toronto. It officially opened with a popular MGM comedy, “The Rookies.” The playhouse was designed by Alfred Chapman, father of Chris Chapman, an accomplished Toronto filmmaker. Known for its music and stage shows, the large 1400-seat theatre, branded “Canada’s Theatre Beautiful”, quickly became popular and brought prestige to the west end of the city. As an atmospheric theatre, the interior of the Runnymede was designed to transport its guests to an exotic place. The painted blue sky ceiling was adorned with clouds, where a complex lighting system projected an array of stars and airplanes. The walls were decorated with a mural, which produced an illusion of being in a courtyard. The building discontinued to be used for plays and live entertainment with the gradual death of vaudeville, and was subsequently converted to a movie theatre sometime in the late 1930s.

It is rumoured that the former theatre is haunted by a ghost of a little girl, whose death was supposedly caused by a falling sandbag. Sandbags were used at the time to control the movement of the curtain before and after a performance. The staff of the cinema believed that they heard sobbing of a little girl behind the screen on the main stage, which was used as a storage supply.

What a unique reuse of a theatre. I love it! I wish things like this would catch on in Winnipeg.
