ROM Theatre

The Royal Ontario Museum is Canada’s largest museum, welcoming more than 1 million visitors annually. The 400 seat auditorium was constructed in the 1930s.

The increasingly high levels of usage of the auditorium by various programs and departments within the museum and by external users made the auditorium’s technical shortcomings and lack of intimacy a growing problem. In this renovation, the stage size was increased and its capacity for film and video presentation vastly improved. Other changes included re-seating, provision of front of house lighting, technical infrastructure and new decor.
