Ottawa did not have a major performing arts venue after 1928 when the National Capital Commission expropriated and demolished the Russell Theatre to make way for Confederation Square. Performers and orchestras visiting the capital were required to use the stage of the Capitol Cinema, which had been designed for vaudeville and films. In 1963, G. Hamilton Southam and Levi Pettler founded the National Capital Arts Alliance with the goal of creating suitable venue. They successfully convinced the city and government to build the new centre.
