ARRIVALS + DEPARTURES

A PLACE FOR WHOLESOME AMUSEMENT

Shellie Zhang creates a new neon light installation illuminating how Toronto’s Jewish and Chinese communities fostered their cultural identities in the same theatre at 285 Spadina at Dundas. Built in 1921, the Standard Theatre first showcased Yiddish theatre. The Golden Harvest Theatre opened in 1975 and operated as a Chinese cinema for two decades.
