About

Style meets technology: A successful marriage between the old and the new has set the foundation for the Imperial. In addition to its unique design ,the theatre was renovated to include a state-of-the-art sound, lighting and video as well as enough band width to host fully integrated multimedia events.

Originally a Chinese-Language house in the early 70s known as the Golden Harvest, the theatre was a popular destination for watching authentic kung-fu movies. In 2007, after more than a 2.5 million dollar renovation, Oscar nominated film producer Bill Vince re-opened the doors as District 319. Gutting the old theatre to its foundation, Bill was able to successfully turn the rundown Chinese theatre into one of the coolest boutique theatres in the city, maybe even the country.

Modelled after the Electric Cinema, a multi-purpose venue in London, the theatre’s current incarnation is a cross between your typical art-house screening room and a high-end steak house. Its lobby features a full-service bar as a centrepiece to facilitate the fully licensed premises. Miniature replicas of Qin Dynasty terracotta warriors line a shelf encircling the bar’s counter: a tasteful touch of chinoiserie that acknowledges the venue’s past.

In addition to its unique design the theatre was renovated to include a state-of-the-art theatre with 35-mm and HD digital projectors, Dolby THX surround sound, and ultra-comfy red leather club chairs. The deluxe auditorium and fully functioning bars are only a couple of its allures. Even the washrooms are stunning.
