The historic, 2,200-seat Canon Theatre began as a vaudeville and movie theatre in the 1920's. The then Pantages Theatre was the largest and most elegant motion picture theatre of its time.
 
Throughout the year the ownership of the lavish theatre changed hands until a bitter rivalry between Famous Players and Cineplex Odeon let to an injunction forbidding the use of the theatre for motion pictures. So owners Cineplex Odeon gutted out the old movie theatre and made it into a live theatre that opened in 1989. The first and longest running production was Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera.
 
In July 2001, new owners Clear Channel Entertainment changed the name of the theatre to The Canon Theatre, recognizing the contributions and support of Canon Canada Inc. Though Clear Channel still owns the theatre it is currently managed by Mirvish Productions.
