Large Multi Use Studio And Cultural Hub
Toronto’s hub for culture and creativity. Nestled away on a seemingly industrial stretch of Geary Avenue at Dufferin & Dupont, the studio is centrally located in an area of the city that is ripe with creative drive and youthful energy.
Housed in a 3000 square foot professional film studio and former recording studio, this space is a multi-purpose space that can magically transform to suit the needs of your creative projects. Whether you are looking for a state of the art location to shoot film or photography projects, a comfortable and accommodating space for intimate music or theatre rehearsals, or to educate the community through workshops or screenings, this space is the ideal space to let your creative ideas run wild.
The community oriented team understands and supports the concept of working together for the common good and are aiming to build a strong bond with a diverse community of local and international creatives.

This space was just alright, and after using it for 4 hours, I found it was really not worth it for the price. I was also disappointed to see the pictures are not what the space actually looks like. The fact that we couldn't use the space like how I thought it looked in the pictures really sucked for what I had planned. I used this space to film footage on the stage, and was hoping to use the white background as well. To the right of the stage it was unusable because there was a massive "curtained off" area that I didn't know about before renting. There is a black curtain behind the stage as well, not the black brick wall I was hoping for. The stage was so weak, that we were unable to use mic stands because it felt like a trampoline underneath us. The stage also had to be covered up because it looked so damaged/ugly - it does not look like the photo. The white wall was not as useful as I hoped because the white wall is curved at the bottom, but doesn't continue onto the ground, so any wide shot looks terrible. The room was very hard to light, and we needed to bring lots of expensive lighting to make it look professional. LED lights in the ceiling we offered for an additional $100, but they were placed incorrectly for nice stage lighting so it would have been a waste of money. The video ended up looking good, but it took too many expensive steps to get there. I have rented many places on this site that have all of these things (like lighting already there, nice walls, floors, backdrops) all for a lower price. I rented this place thinking it was worth it because of the stage, but the stage was not very practical or useful and we ended up having to cut it out of the shot.
Wow, having my event here was a great experience. The studio manager, Esteban, was wonderful. He was extremely helpful with the music setup and getting our event going. The communication with the Geary Studio was great, all throughout the process. The space is unique and it was especially great to rent music equipment from them (it was all good quality and worked well). The studio is equipped with supplies, water, and other things we needed. Overall I'm very pleased with the choice to use this venue for my event!
Awesome host, and great venue!
This was a perfect venue for my first Live Podcast show - definitely will use this spot again and refer!
This was my second time booking the space, this time for a large dance show rehearsal. Awesome space for any use, Gili was lovely and easy to coordinate with.
This was the best space for my party of over 100. So relaxed and so understanding.
I was very pleased with the space and working with Gili. She was most responsive and helpful. The space was as advertised, and was clean and had all the amenities listed.
