The Music Hall is a performance art venue in Toronto. Constructed in 1919 by architects Hynes, Feldman and Watson, the hall was originally part of the National Theatre chain, named Allen's Danforth Theatre after chain ownes. After years of operation hosting, it was revisioned as a second-run movie theater called the century. In 2005, it underwent renovations under new management to return it to its theater roots.

A hop, skip and jump (or lean, stumble and crawl, depending on your state) from Broadview Station, the Music Hall has been around for almost a hundred years and narrowly avoided a grim death in the early 2000s and again in 2010 due to piled-up bills.
But that can’t tarnish the headline acts it’s seen over the years. From Calgary indie pop duo Tegan and Sara, to East Coast hero Joel Plaskett and even hometown rockers the Tragically Hip. The rectangular hall can hold up to 1500 people, with a tiered standing floor and permanent balcony seating above. Bars are serving on both levels to keep your buzz up and feet moving.
Tip: There’s a McDicks across the street to help with the subway ride home.
