The Griffin’s Auditorium Theatre was opened in 1906. It was located at Queen Street W at Spadina Avenue (northwest corner). It became the Avenue Theatre in 1913 and was renamed in 1915 for Mary Pickford, who, though widely known as "America’s Sweetheart," was born in Toronto. In 1945 it was renamed Variety Theatre. The theatre survived into at least the 1940’s. It was demolished and a MacDonald’s Restaurant now occupies the site.
