Do you believe in the ghost of Ambrose Small who haunted the Grand Theater in Ontario, London?

Many musicians and theater performers have had experience with the ghost of Ambrose Small after or even during their performance at the theater. The Grand Theater in Ontario opened in 1901. The original owner of the Theater, Ambrose Rose, was reportedly missing in 1919. From that moment on there were many reports of his apparitions to many actors and actresses, including staff and employees of the theater.

When Ambrose Small sold his stake in the grand theater, he cashed the check, he has a $100,000 in his pocket and he was never been seen since except for his ghost form that roams the halls of the grand theatre. Ambrose Small was often seen in his favorite box, at the right balcony facing the audience. Sightings of Ambrose Small began the night he disappeared. Reportedly the security guard saw him in the grand theater, something that may have been impossible because he was already reported missing in that afternoon. The sightings of his ghostly appearance became frequent over time.
