In an attempt to re-vitalize downtown, Famous Players opened the Portage Place Cinemas on September 17, 1987.
Combining Gothic Revival and Art Deco styles, the cinemas are lavish with giant screens, several different digital sound systems, high-backed seats (different colours for each auditorium), gothic columns down the auditoriums, a large concession stand and an entire wall of glass running the length of the auditoriums that looked down onto Portage Avenue from the third storey of Portage Place.
This cinema is completely wheelchair accessible.
Famous Players skipped paying the enormous lease for a few months before it was closed on June 15, 2014, and that resulted in the mall’s owners replacing the locks. They sued to get their equipment back, but lost.
In June 2002, Landmark Cinemas took over this theatre that is commonly known as one of Winnipeg’s most finest. They were showing art films and offer free parking. It was closed in 2014. The building stands vacant in 2021.
