Mission & History | Kingston Grand Theatre

Mission & History

Opening in 1879 and having undergone four major renovations, the Grand Theatre continues to provide downtown Kingston with a remarkable historical facility that functions as an important community resource.  Restored and re-opened to the public in 2008, the Grand Theatre welcomes tens of thousands of patrons each year who enjoy the performances presented by and for the community along with numerous commercial presentations. In addition, the Grand OnStage program continues to offer an important City-led service designed to expose Kingston residents to a range of national and international artists through a combination of performances, education and engagement activities.
