The Place Grand Theatre

My project is about who built the palace grand theatre and what kind of performances they showed at the theatre.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The thing I found most interesting is that a guy named Arizona Charlie Meadows built the palace grand theatre.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I learned that the theatre was worth far less ($17000.00) back in the 1900’s than it is worth now.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

When I went to the theatre last year to see one of the performances it costa lot more than the few cents it cost back then to go to one of the shows.
