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.
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.
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.
Thanks for posting your memories of the 400 Drive-In. Yes it was a great Drive-In and it will be sadly missed.
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.
The Convention Centre Cinema closed its doors forever sometime in late May 2002. The Convention Centre Cinema closed with a friday night Retro Double Bill showing of “E.T.” & “Back To The Future” This theater is now called the Convention Theater with shows live plays & sometimes live magic shows.
The Garrick Cinemas closed its doors forever on March 14th 2002 with a final 9:50 PM showing of “Super Troopers”

I just found out some history about the “Roxy Theater” in Burlington & I know that It was located in The Downtown area & It open in 1949 & closed in 1960, not in 1980, that was the “Odeon Theatre”. But I could not find any more info on what street it was located on & I can’t find any photos of the “Roxy” in Burlington.
If anyone can help me with this problem, then please E-mail me @
If anyone has photos of any movie theater is Canada that is not posted on this site, then please post them here by clicking the “Add A Theater” or “Add A Photo” buttons. The more photos on this great site the better. Thanks from Chad Irish.
The Roxy theater in Burlington closed in 1980, not in 1960.
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.
