In January 2020, we gathered to celebrate friendship, love and life.
Then everything changed. At the time, we didn't know that for many of us, it would be the last time we would gather.
As we return to the "new" normal, you are cordially invited once again to celebrate those simple things we so often took for granted.

Re-incarnated and restored to it's glory in 2020 as...
THE MIDTOWN EVENT THEATRE [THE MET]
2496 Yonge Street (just north of Eglinton] | Uptown
The year was 1918 when the historic Capitol Theatre began captivating the imaginations of audiences. Located UPTOWN just north of Yonge & Eglinton, the theatre featured vaudeville shows and silent films. Records show the venue was originally built for Mr. McClelland, who arrived in Canada from Kingston Jamaica (brap brap).
Originally capable of seating 1300 patrons, the theatre possessed a stage to accommodate vaudeville and a space near the stage for musicians. In 1924, a balcony was added. In the 1990s, it was a second-run movie house, featuring films that were not recent releases.
The Curtain Closes & The Lights Go Out. The End Of An Era?
The Capitol shut its doors as a movie theatre in November 1998, however, the old movie house was saved from demolition. After a 2 million dollar reno, The Capitol was lovingly restored to its former glory and re-opened as a special event venue named the Capitol Event Theatre. Though the seating had been removed, the high ceiling, stage and ornate interior detailing were maintained with several modern comforts added for guests to enjoy in the city's premier special events venue!
In 2000, THE ONE made it's debut at the legendary Kajmere nightclub on King Street. Two years later, in search of a more upscale venue, the event was relocated Uptown to the The Capitol Event Theatre, where it was hosted for numerous years before moving on... In subsequent years, THE ONE has played host to to: 6 Degrees, The Courthouse, This Is London / Product & Barcode, and Cube before returning to the MET in 2020.
