From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The John W.H. Bassett Theatre is located in the heart of Toronto, Ontario's entertainment district.

The 1,330 seat (840 Orchestra Level, 490 Balcony Level), multi-purpose theatre is a self-contained venue within the Metro Toronto Convention Centre's North Building. The adjacent rooms host pre-and post-performance receptions. The theatre also hosts corporate events, a number of nationally-televised award shows, community events and national and international TV specials.

The theatre was named for John Bassett, the founder of Baton Broadcasting, the main predecessor of CTVglobemedia, parent of the CTV Television Network. It has been reserved and booked each year from June to October since 2003 for CTV's Canadian Idol.
