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 Projection Room

The Projection Room

Located upstairs in the former cinema’s projection booth, the new cocktail and snack bar completes the cycle to launch The Fox Cabaret as a multi-room venue in Mount Pleasant. Operating as both a venue and a neighbourhood bar, the Fox will act as a cultural space for the best independent music, art, performance, and entertainment.

Designed by Scott Cohen and created in collaboration with Maya Beaudry, Graham Landin, Olivia Carmen Meek, and Marie-Helene Tessier, the space is unlike any other room in the city. Prepare yourself for leopard print walls (an homage to Dr and Lady Brute) , gradients, a sparkly bar, pink mirrored tables, and beautiful pendant lights designed by Omer Arbel for Bocci.

Open 7 days a week (eventually), early evenings will function as a casual neighbourhood spot to find playful, inviting new cocktails (and all the classics), a great selection of beer, and an assortment of bar snacks. Late nights and weekends will play host to DJs and parties in conjunction with programming downstairs or as stand alone events.

Inquire here to book The Projection Room for a private event.

For most events tickets are available at the door. However for some events we do sell advance tickets. Check ourcalendar or Eventbrite page for full details.
