CSWalczak commented about Columbia Place Cinemas 8 on Dec 6, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Since it had gone independent by the time of its closing, another factor in deciding to closemight have been the cost of conversion to digital. Converting eight screens, depending on whether Regal had converted any of them, would have be a heavy financial burden on an independent.

Status should be changed to closed. This theater has been converted to a furniture store; the current Google Street View shows the faded painted arch that was above the marquee, but it looks like this will soon be covered over.

CSWalczak commented about Strand Theatre on Dec 5, 2012 at 5:13 pm

That is what the Rivest List indicates.Looking at the Google street view of the area, there does not seem to be any building that really looks like a theatre, except for an Odd Fellows Hall, but that is on Robinson. The Simcoe Little Theater apparently moved out as their website has a different address for their current facility.

According the information at the IMDb for “Rated X”, filming took place in Hamilton, at the Tivoli, in Toronto, and in Uxbridge, Ontario. Portions of the also made-for-TV film, “Laughter on the 23rd Floor” based on the play by (and really about) Neil Simon, made the year after “Rated X,” were also filmed at the Tivoli.
