About Us

Built in 1949 as a cinema, it closed it's doors in the late 70's. Became a church, stood for empty and finally re-opened in 2016 as a Cultural Centre The Crown Harriston. With its art-deco architecture, the building still maintains many original features.

There's street parking available, as well as a parking-lot in behind the building.

Our vision

Founded in 2016, Cultural Center The Crown Harriston is an umbrella organisation that supports small businesses and entertainment in Harriston - Town of Minto, Ontario. Apart from movies, music and events, we also give home to Harriston Hearing Care and The Magic Ice Cream Shoppe.
