Anyone know anything about this cinema? I can’t find any reference to it anywhere online.

Roger Katz commented about Loft Cinemas on Dec 10, 2014 at 11:21 am

OK – look at the current Street View. The entrance to the left of the main adult shop says “Loft Cinemas” which clearly are an adult movie theatre that is currently open with “six theatres” and “14 mini cinemas”.

Does anyone know how that works? Is the former auditorium all carved up, or maybe the former balcony? Or could it be former office space above the lobby?

If anyone lives in Toronto I’d love to know.

The theatre was carved out of storefronts at 62-64 Main Street South in 1932. The building still stands today.

Roger Katz commented about Towne Cinemas on Dec 9, 2014 at 7:06 am

This was built in 1913 as the Griffin Opera House. As seen on the marquee, the lat incarnation was spelled Town Cinemas (not Towne Cinema).

The article at http://www.stcatharinesstandard.ca/2012/10/02/old-lincoln-theatres-silver-screen-gets-a-second-life suggests the theatre lasted until 1987.

I think this may have been called the Crescent, not the Crystal. The 1917-18 city directory lists the Crescent Theatre at this address.

Roger Katz commented about Bradley Playhouse on Dec 5, 2014 at 11:26 am

I think the Victory was a separate theatre from the Bradley. There’s a picture of it at http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NTU3WDg0NA==/z/mq0AAMXQAx9RS1CQ/$T2eC16V,!%29QE9s3HFf3cBRS1CQ,je!~~60_57.JPG and while I can’t see the theatre clearly, the address says Main Street whereas the Bradley is on Front Street.
