About Us

Built in 1949 as a cinema, The Crown Harriston is a postmodern structure with many original art-deco features. Used as a church, and closed in the late 70's. It re-opened in 2016 as a Cultural Centre


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.



What's new? 

With a capacity of 210 authentic seats, the auditorium consists of a stage baffled in three tiers, with a total surface of 16 by 24 feet. A backstage area and a small dressing room. Equipped with a modern movie projector and vintage wall-screen. It has an up to date sound-system, various stage- and dimmable overhead lights.
