IATSE Organizes Sanderson Centre

IATSE Canada logo

Brantford, Ontario – IATSE Local 129, with the assistance of the International, was successful in its efforts to organize stage employees at the Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts. Yesterday’s unanimous vote was even more pleasing, as this was the local’s second attempt at certifying the Centre, after an unsuccessful bid sixteen months ago.

The 1133-seat venue, originally named the Temple Theatre, was opened in 1919 as a vaudeville house. Ten years later it was purchased by Famous Players and entertained movie-goers for the next six decades. In 1985, it was purchased by the City of Brantford, and after $6 million in renovations, was re-opened in 1989 as the Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts.
