Ontario Lottery and Gaming officials say Niagara Falls new 5,000 seat entertainment centre is, as planned, expected to open mid-2019.
Construction began in the fall of 2017.
It is being constructed adjacent to Fallsview Casino, next to the Hilton Hotel at the corner of Stanley Avenue and Murray Street. There is a new enclosed walkway connecting the new theatre to the Fallsview Casino.
The new centre is expected to result in an initial capital investment of $130 million, and more than 800 direct jobs have been created by the project.
This new entertainment centre will accommodate larger attractions, concerts and shows which will attract more people to the city and the two Niagara Falls casinos. Currently the Fallsview Casino’s Avalon Ballroom and theatre has 1,500 seats.
