Ace Theater (II)

The second theater to be known as the Ace Theater in Toronto opened in 1913 as the New Onoka Theater but was soon renamed the Iola Theatre. It became the Ace Theater in 1945 and was adorned with the vertical sign spelling ‘ACE'in lighted circles on top of each other that had been on the Ace Theater on Queen Street W.

The theater closed around 1955. The front of the building remains, perhaps slightly recognizable as a former theater, with the space converted to retail and a pub/restaurant. In 2018 it was converted into a gymnasium.
