I can believe that this one was built in 1911. I uploaded an ad for a Garden Theatre from 1914.

The June, 1989, issue of the Bulletin published by the Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada has small versions of the photos of the Garden Theatre that CSWalczak linked to. The text says that the house was built in 1911, and was designed by architect J. Hunt Stanford.

A PDF of the Bulletin is available from this link. The issue is devoted to theaters, and has dozens of historic photos, but the PDF is quite large (almost 8MB.) The photos of the Garden Theatre are on page 48.

Here is a wbsite about the history of this theater including a picture of it as the Garden ( it actually had a roof garden at one time):
