Odeon Champlain

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Odeon Champlain is located on Saint-Catherine Street East, just past Papineau Street. It was opened on March 28, 1948 and was designed by architect Henry E. Greenspoon. Seating was provided for 1,409 in orchestra and balcony levels. Three theatres by the British based Rank Organisation, thru their subsidiary Odeon Theatres (Canada) Ltd., appeared within two years: Le Odeon Cremazie, Le Odeon Champlain and Le Odeon Mercier. All were designed by the same architect.

It closed as a twin screen cinema in early-1990, then was used by a religious group. They closed in 2004, and the building is now barricaded.

Here is a 1989 photo I took of the theatre. It appears to have been a two-screener before it closed. In this photo it already is being used as a church, with its name, VIE ET REVEIL, on the marquee.
