Magnus Theatre: The Next Stage

a major infrastructure project to restore, upgrade, and expand this unique facility

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO   ~~~~~~  September 9, 2022 (LNews)  Magnus Theatre has thrived in its first 50 years as Northwestern Ontario’s only professional theatre. Demand is growing exponentially for both programming and facility rentals, but upgrades are vital to extending possibilities within the community.

With significant revitalization to the downtown core and the surge of shopping and dining activities, Magnus Theatre plays a leading role as the cultural hub of the flourishing Waterfront Entertainment District.

The Next Stage is a major infrastructure project launched to restore, upgrade, and expand this unique facility to meet emerging needs of the community and to maximize Magnus Theatre’s impact as a cultural and economic force. Imagine a modernized Magnus Theatre as the gateway to the revitalized Waterfront Entertainment District: a link to the city’s history and a beacon for the future of arts and business in Northwestern Ontario.

The project will see the addition of a 125-seat Studio Theatre, expansion of the Production Shop, renovations to the Lounge, and building improvements and retrofit, all while maintaining the Heritage features of the Central School building. 

The Next Stage project would not be a reality without the generous support from the following sponsors and we cannot thank them enough for helping make this possible. This project is funded [in part] by the Government of Canada -$3,137,500, proudly supported by FedNor - $750,000, the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation - $1,000,000, the Trillium Community Building Fund - $94,315, and the Trillium Resilient Communities Fund - $137,500.
