This is a Single Screen Theatre built in 1947 that seats 302. It has recently been listed for Sale after being run by the same Owners for 42 years. The building is located at the North end of Main Street in downtown Oliver. At the back of the theatre is a 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment. The cinema is fully digital with 3D capabilities.

The drive in was opened in 2002 by New Millennium Cinemas. It has been privately owned and operated by the same company since it opened. The Starlight Drive-In has become a beloved summer attraction, and is still going strong.

Love being able to come on here and see all the pictures of this theatre in detail. Wish i had taken more pictures of all the cinemas i worked at. I miss working there, lots of memories with the Capitol 6, it makes me so sad that i’ll never be able to go inside again. It’s only a matter of time before the building is demolished i’m sure.

Thanks for the Info! Whatever she was she was a mean old machine and i hated her, haha. She had been modified so much, would have been awesome to see what she looked like, and how she operated, when new back in the 60’s

Yeah once digital came in all the old 35mm projectors were usually stripped of anything that management/staff wanted to keep as souvenirs, haha. My husband and i have lenses and other parts from the projectors from the theatre in Kelowna we were working at when it went digital.

Caprice Entertainment was the company that built, opened, and ran this theatre until Landmark took over operations. My father ran Caprice’s Showcase 5 in Westbank at the time, and oversaw The Grand 10 construction.

My mother ran this theatre for the first 9 years of my life. There was a decent sized two bedroom apartment above the theatre, we lived there until i was 4.

There was a decent sized two bedroom apartment above the theatre. The long tall window behind the Palace sign was attic space, but the set of 3 windows in the upper left of this photo was my bedroom when i was a preschooler.

This theatre was built, and opened by, Caprice Entertainment in 1996. It Opened in late 1996, and was run by Caprice until Landmark took over operations in 2000. (My parents ran this theatre for Caprice Entertainment) This theatre is now a second run discount cinema as Landmark opened a brand new Extreme Theatre closer to the bridge.
