The Fox Cabaret provides an inclusive platform for high quality independent music, art, performance and entertainment.


Previously, The Fox was a fixture in Mount Pleasant and the last 35mm porno theatre in North America. The VCR decimated adult movie theatres, but the Fox was a stubborn and sleazy holdout. The Fox played original XXX prints of adult film favourites like Behind the Green Door, Debbie Does Dallas and hosted the Canadian premiere of the cult classic Deep Throat.

The Arrival Agency, the operators of the venue and the former team behind the Waldorf Hotel, has been working for the last year to transform what used to be a porn theatre into an “arts and culture cabaret”.

So what is The Fox Cabaret? I think we’re supposed to think of it as another “cultural compound”, the second coming of The Waldorf, which was sacrificed to false real estate idols last year. It’ll be operated by the same crew as before…

Dubbed by many as the New Waldorf, The Fox Cabaret is set to reopen tonight, completing a year long transformation from the notorious porn theatre, Fox Cinema, into a most welcome arts + culture cabaret.
