Originally known as the Walker Theatre, The Burton Cummings Theatre was constructed in 1906-07. The theatre was built for a new style of professional-level entertainment and it brought ballets, operas, and Broadway-style shows to Winnipeg. The theatre was converted into the Odeon Cinema in 1945 and served as Winnipeg’s most popular single-screen movie theatre. In 2002, the theatre was renamed after Burton Cummings, Winnipeg-born performer, and former lead singer of the Guess Who.
In April 2014, True North Sports + Entertainment assumed management and operating control of Winnipeg’s historic Burton Cummings Theatre, acquiring full ownership in 2016. Investing significant time and resources, True North has set forth on a long-term project to program and rejuvenate the theatre as part of an exciting new era of entertainment growth in Winnipeg.
