Looks like the Mayfair is closing, probably at the end of November. The theatre needs a major infusion of cash for building repairs and the owner isn’t willing to do them.

What do you mean “dressed formally”? White tie? Black tie? Jackets & ties?

Sorry, no. It was originally one screen, then cut to 2 screens. Then Cineplex Odeaon took it to 5 screens. Now it’s a Rainbow Cinema.

Hugger1 commented about Cineplex fires a great salvo; finally some innovation on Jun 11, 2006 at 11:13 pm

Cineplex is not the first to do this type of advertising. Famous Players (who Cineplex recently bought) did this same ad with the same tag line in the mid 90’s.

One of the classiest places around in it’s day, along with the Capital.

Hugger1 commented about Phoenix Theatre on Mar 29, 2006 at 12:08 am

This movie house had a few names in it’s existence; The Rialto (we use to call it the Rat Hole, no explanation needed) being one and the Phoenix Theatre being another. During it’s days I attended as a kid we could see 3 top rate movies for 35 cents.

Hugger1 commented about Rideau Theatre on Mar 28, 2006 at 5:14 am

It was too big a theatre for it’s location. Land was too expensive and it wasn’t pulling in the crowds. In it’s later stages it was showing second runs of movies. In the end they closed the balconey.

NO………….the old theatre building was torn down and the space is still empty. The STAPLES building is the old Colonial Furniture location.

I currently live in Ottawa. The “PHOENIX” has been gone since the early 1990’s. The location is at 403 BANK STREET (between Waverley and Frank Street). The building is now owned and operated by STAPLES / Business Depot since about 1995.
