BRACEBRIDGE, ONTARIO, CANADA — The Norwood Cinema is celebrating sixty years in business as it looks back at the changes in moviegoing over the years.

Joseph built the original 600-seat building in 1949, complete with a stage for live shows, two aisles and a screen to show movies.

Times have changed and the building now houses three cinemas. Cinema One has 235 seats, Cinema Two has 220 seats and Cinema Three has 120 seats.

The original theatre also had red velvet curtains and its live shows were well attended, remember its owners.
