"The history of the Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts is a long and fascinating one, spanning 97 years. It shows the magnificent design, architecture and entertainment highlights of an era and reflects the evolution and growth of our heritage and culture."
Opened as the Temple Theatre on December 22, 1919, it was originally designed as a vaudeville and silent movie house. The grand and glorious theatre was designed by world-famous Scottish architect Thomas W. Lamb and was erected at the cost of $350,000. The theatre was built and operated by a partnership of local business people called Brant Amusements Ltd. Amid the grandeur of 1919, the theatre inspires all to treasure the past and cherish the present. The historical main auditorium seats, 1,125 people.
