    From Niagara This Week:

    Completion of Niagara Falls Entertainment Centre has been delayed again.

    But Mayor Jim Diodati, who toured the 5,000-seat facility Wednesday, said he’s confident the public will be “thrilled” with the venue once it opens.

    Work on the $130-million theatre at Stanley Avenue and Murray Street began in fall 2017.

    At the time, officials said the 18,000-square-metre building, which will be connected to Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort by an enclosed pedestrian walkway, was expected to open in June 2019.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    A new 7,000-seat entertainment centre, planned to be built adjacent and connected to the gaming floor at the existing Fallsview Casino, should not just cater to adults and gamblers, say city council.

    The venue, expected to host national and international-scale concerts, as well as sports and entertainment events, should also be open to younger people who might want to catch certain shows, say local politicians.

    “It should be an all-ages venue, not just for those 19 and older,” said Coun. Carolynn Ioannoni. “It should be accessible to teenagers.”

    Ioannoni was backed by her council colleagues this week when her motion was approved to “send a strong message” to the company managing the city’s two casinos that the new facility be family-friendly.
