The Rose Theatre was built to be a major tourism destination in the Flower City, and it was hoped that it could bring in new business to local Brampton stores and restaurants. In February 2006, the name of the theatre was announced as the Rose Theatre. On September 29, 2006, the theatre had its grand opening with Canadian jazz pianist and singer, Diana Krall, who put on a terrific performance. Over the years, the theatre has attracted many visitors annually who spend thousands of dollars.

Here is the website for the theatre and a 2007 article on the theatre. Make sure to come check out a show at this amazing state-of-the-art theatre!
