Casa Loma designed by Architect E.J Lennox is one of Toronto's most famous Historic landmarks. It was first the residence of Sir Henry Mill Pellat. Originally it was built over three years from 1911-1914. Now the Landmark serves as a museum, a film set, wedding venue, and an event venue. This summer, Casa Loma was the centre of a celebration of love, and was the venue for 110 gay wedding during this years World Pride. 

Casa Loma has been featured in a string of movies famously; X-men,Robocop, Chicago, and Scott Pilgrim Vs the World and many more. Scott Pilgrim vs the World is based on a comic book series which also features the famous landmark.

The documentary "The Pellatt Newsreel: the Man who Built Casa Loma" which features the first resident of Casa Loma, has also brought the famous landmark some world renowned spotlight. 

Crightonism: Casa Loma was the site of the last time I sat on Santa Claus knee as a child. I was dared by my Godmother at an age where we both knew that I was "pushing my luck". Fond memory indeed. I returned to the site many years later to make a painting that hangs in the castle to this day… prints available :))))
