I think this will be considered a classic one day.
I like the Auditorium sizes much better than the shoe boxes around the corner at the “Market Square Rainbow Cinema”
Actualy I apologize for posting on the wrong thread.
I was just quoting a source of reference to confirm the address of the “Victory Theatre”
With this I bid you farewell I have a plane to catch.
Yes I posted that in response to the post five above this one.
The 1947 Toronto Telephone book lists the “Victory Theatre” as being at “287 Spadina”
If you want to check performance times telephone ( WAverley 5006 )
Here is a snap I took on Monday February 8th 2010
I figure it looks better in the dark when it is all lit up.
Here is a photo I took on Monday February 8th 2010 of the building Cinecity was located in.
I have established now that the building was erected in 1905.
The old Post Office Building is still there.
I guess the cinema was in the Post Office building.
It just didn’t look suitable to me.
The front of the building contains a 24hr McDonalds.
Yes you are right the even numbers are on the north side of the street.
I wonder if they renumbered the street at some time because the old “Postal Station F” dates from the late 1800s.
So the cinema couldn’t have been there.
I beleive that this is the same photo that CWalczak posted on June 4 2008 and unfortunately the link no longer works.
A lot of the links to the “City of Toronto Archives” no longer work.
This is probably considered cheating but I snagged this from “Google Street View” this shows 4 and 6 Charles Street East.
I assume “Cinecity” was the building where the people are sitting at the table. I don’t know if it also incorporated the building to the left or not?
That brings back memories thank you but I seem to recall an even bigger Gorilla at one time and it was climbing the building like the Gorilla in King Kong.
Here is a night time photo I took in February 2009.
My 1969 Telephone Book shows the address as 6 Charles Street East.
The official address was 655 Dixon Road
According to my 1969 Telephone book the actual address of the “Glendale” was 1661 Avenue Road.
My apologizes if this has been stated before but I don’t beleive it has.
Here are two photos I took on January 18th 2010
Here is how it looks as of January 18th 2010
South East corner of Pape & Floyd
There is a TD-Canada Trust branch on that piece of land now.
