Built in 1923, the Trianon theatre is reminiscent of the Grand Trianon and the Petit Trianon on the grounds of Versailles near Paris, both acclaimed for their artful expression of sublime simplicity. The theatre has been known over the past many years as Le Petit Trianon.
Built originally as a house of worship for the Christian Assembly by accomplished architect, William Binder, in 1923, the theatre’s main auditorium possesses excellent acoustics, an antique organ and seats 318. Binder took inspiration for design of the building from Le Petit Trianon, the miniature chateau on the palace grounds of Versailles, which was built in 1761 for Madame de Pompadour, favorite of King Louis XV. The building has been said to be the best example of classic architecture in the city and still looks exactly as Binder designed it in 1923.
