Fire officials said a supper-hour blaze that tore through the historic theatre Saturday was a case of arson, owing to the building not being connected to sources of gas or electricity.

The three-alarm fire started on the second floor of the theatre, and took around 70 firefighters to get under control.

There were no reported injuries.

Many Montrealers have lamented about the sorry state of the theatre as it had been abandoned since the city kicked a local gymnastics club out two years ago.

It was once a booming theatre in the area, providing an experience usually reserved for big theatres downtown.

It is now up for sale.
