I never visited this theatre but I remember walking by it several times when my Italian family was in Montreal, from Providence, to visit relatives in 1959 and 1960 and maybe later as well. I remember that they sometimes showed Italian films, as the theatre’s name might suggest, and was surrounded by the neighborhood where many Italian Canadians lived. I was always curious about the place and managed to find a few photos and newspaper ads which I have posted in the photo section.

No doubt Bernardo Bertolucci visited this movie theatre, particularly in the 1950s and 1960s. He was from Parma.
