Steve, if you look at Famous Players website, the Silvercity St Vital is a 10 screen, stadium seating, curved screen multiplex. Just like all of the other Silvercity brand theatres in Canada. Why did you list it as the other cinema with 6 screens that came before it but call it Silvercity which it wasn’t?

Hi Tim, If you check the ADD A THEATRE link above, you’ll note that it first asks for the current name of the theatre. Perhaps I should have been more specific as this was not a refurb as much as it was a demolition and replacement. I will try to have this edited and corrected. Thanks for your note.

This should be listed as Cineplex, which is the corporate successor to Famous Players, since 2005.

Correction: Operated by Cineplex since 2005, still branded as SilverCity St. Vital.

I went to this theatre back in 1993 when it was still the St. Vital 6. The movie I caught there was Cool Runnings.

Does anyone have any information on the original St. Vital 6- pics, any details about what you remember?

I have a photo I took of the outside of the St. Vital 6 back when I went there, but I’d have to scan it first before downloading it.

My scan of the St. Vital 6 photo I took in 1993 is now up in the photo section.
