It is between 1907 and 1909 that this magnificent five-storey building
was built by Pearson and Darling for the Canadian Bank of Commerce
in the neoclassical architecture fronted by six distinctive Corinthian columns,
Later known as the CIBC, the Bank remained there until 2010.
Another noteworthy tenant:
the White Star Line had its offices in the building
and tickets for the RMS Titanic were sold there.
In 2012, the owners of the Montreal landmark, The Rialto Theatre,
purchased the former bank and crowned it The St. James Theatre.
While staying true to the history of the building and highlighting
its breathtaking architecture, the St. James Theatre was transformed
as Montreal’s newest high-end venues to hold prestigious weddings & events,
The St-James Theatre was born!
