Setting the stage for film and television

The film and television industry is booming in Toronto due to all the tax credits offered by the Ontario government. Many film and television shows created by American production companies that are set in major US cities are actually filmed right here in Toronto. Next time your watching a movie or TV show that is set in an American city take a second look and you might just recognize a building or landmark that is unique to Toronto.

Abbey Road Entertainment has had the pleasure of working with many of these production companies. We are often used for prop rentals, set design, background staffing and casino consultation.

We carry a wide inventory of equipment that can work for both sets and props, They include but are not limited to, palm tree rentals, tiki bar rentals, casino table rentals, game rentals and money machine rentals. This is just a small list of some of the shows we have worked with:

  • Nikita
  • Big Brother Canada
  • Dragons Den
  • Flashpoint
  • Suits
  • Lucky 7

Lucky 7 was our latest experience. Abbey Road Entertainment was hired to set up a full casino in the Royal York Hotel. The setup took a full 12 hours with a staff of 8 people. We set up 80 full size authentic slot machines, 10 blackjack tables, 10 poker tables, 1 full size authentic craps table, 1 full size authentic roulette table and much, much more. It was an extremely high end set that we were proud to be a part of. Lucky 7 premiered on Tuesday September 24th at 10 pm EST on ABC and will continue to air every Tuesday at 10 pm.

Here are a few shots of the setup from the set of Lucky 7.
