Take A Haunted Walking Tour In Vancouver

Early in the morning of 20 March 1933, a bomb was tossed into the Royal Theatre, 144 East Hastings Street. The explosion was so powerful that it blew out the front of the theatre and shattered windows across the street. Historian Tom Carter tells us that part of the ticket booth ended up in his grandfather’s café on the other side of Hastings. Although no one was charged with the bombing, the most likely culprit is the mafia. At the time, mobster Willie “The Pimp” Bioff was leading a terror campaign across the continent to take over the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE). Bioff himself was eventually killed by a car bomb for being a rat.
