A history of the Gas Station Theatre site !

The term "Gas Station Theatre" is so familiar to people that its easy to forget that the site really was home to a gas station for almost sixty-five years !

Last year, the Gas Station Arts Centre, as it is now called, celebrated its 30th anniversary and is now exploring the redevelopment of the site. I thought this would be a great time to look back at the site's its high octane history !
