Three photos of the Pantages can be seen on this page at the University of Manitoba’s Winnipeg Buildings Index. Photos depicting the 1991 addition to the Pantages, as designed by Stechesen Katz Architects, are available on this page of the same site.

The Performing Arts Consortium now manages the theatre for the City of Winnipeg. Their website is They also have a “History” page with pictures for a few of the other Pantages theatres in North America.

Had Alexander Pantages been able to build the theatre on the original site no doubt it would have fronted on Main Street.(the present theatre site is one building lot down from the corner.) When the new lobby and studios were built a few years ago, it was to the side of the original building. The remaining land is now a small park with walkways leading from Main Street to the theatre. There is a pylon at the corner of Market and Main with illuminated Pantages name and attractions panels as part of it, so almost 100 years after the fact, Pantages has visibility on Main Street.
