This has recently been converted to an American Apparel store. If you squint just right, though, you can still see it as a cinema…

A photo of the Downtown can be found here: View link — this was just after a Vice Squad bust.

Apparently the seats from the Downtown were rescued for the Gas Station Theatre (a live venue), but I can’t find my reference for that.

I can find no record of a “Forksville, Manitoba,” or any triplex such as that described as existing anywhere in Manitoba. Could this be describing another location?
