Saskatoon's Broadway Theatre has a parabolic floor

The Broadway Theatre

Built in 1946 as Saskatoon's eastside movie house, the

Broadway Theatre's smooth, rounded finish and austere

detailing are examples of the Art Deco style. Elements of

this style are visible on both the building's exterior and 

in the lobby. Designed by the firm of Webster and Gilbert,

the building was constructed with many then-innovative

features such as a parabolic floor and crying room.

Friends of the Broadway Theatre, Inc. assumed community

ownership and management of the theatre in 1993.

Refurbished to retain its original character and use, the

theatre remains an integral part of the Broadway

commercial district.

The Broadway Theatre was designated 

a Municipal Heritage Property on April 14, 1997.
