The Majestic Theater is still standing today but is being used as a clothing store at this time.

It still has the old box office in front of this classic movie house. I would be nice to see someone restore the Majestic in Downtown Dundas.

ChadIrish commented about Metro Theatre on Aug 19, 2002 at 11:51 pm

The Metro Theater should be fixed up on the inside and the outside or it should just be blown up and put to rest. Just look at the photo on the right Its falling apart. It dose not look very safe to see a show at all. ~R.I.P.~ This is not a Cinema Treasure at all.

The Bloor Cinema has been a Toronto landmark for over 60 years. Recently refurbished, this vintage movie house is one of the best places in the city of Toronto to see rare and hard to find movie classics, foreign and domestic, as well as premiere presentations of new films from around the world.

The Bloor Cinema also welcomes new filmmakers to exhibit their talents, and has been the venue of choice for several independent festivals and student film screenings.

So when your in the city of Toronto come to the Bloor Cinema.

ChadIrish commented about 7 & 27 Drive-In on Aug 19, 2002 at 1:39 pm

I was only at the 7 & 27 Drive-In two times, so I dont remember to much about this Drive-In, but your right it did have a huge horseshoe shaped snack bar and it was located pretty close to the 400 Drive-In.

ChadIrish commented about 400 Drive-In on Aug 19, 2002 at 1:30 pm

Thanks for posting your memories of the 400 Drive-In. Yes it was a great Drive-In and it will be sadly missed.

ChadIrish commented about Cineplex Cinemas Yorkdale on Aug 19, 2002 at 1:24 pm

Sorry Tim, But your got your story wrong. The Yorkdale was just a single screen movie theater when it opened in December of 1963. It was never twinned until 1979 or 1980. I dont remember them adding anymore screens until 1986.

ChadIrish commented about Lyric Theatre on Apr 8, 2002 at 5:24 pm

Its a really sad day when an old movie theatre like the Lyric in downtown Kitchener closes for good, just because they want to make room for a new parking lot.

Kitchener is also home of the “OCTOBER FEST” where all weekend long all they do is drink beers from around the world and party all night long. Kitchener residents should be a shame of themselves. There in only one theatre left in downtown Kitchener, and it a small 4 screen multiplex owned by Famous Players.
