The Brantford Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts offers a full season of music, theatre and entertainment!
This historic theatre has been providing entertainment since it opened as The Temple vaudeville theatre in 1919! The Sanderson website traces the history as the theatre was sold in 1929 and renamed The Capitol where feature films were the popular entertainment choice.
“The City of Brantford purchased the building for $425,000 in 1986 to preserve Brantford’s heritage and create a cultural centre for the community. A group of dedicated volunteers spearheaded a highly successful fundraising campaign with support from the community and local businesses to restore the Capitol Theatre. Over several years, the theatre was reborn with an authentically restored auditorium and improved services for guests and performers.
During the restoration work, the theatre was renamed the Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts in tribute to the memory of the Sanderson family. The Sanderson family was a well-known supporter of the Sanderson Centre restoration and many other local causes.” Sanderson Centre Website.
