An attractive neighborhood theatre for about forty-five years. The Snowdon Theatre was opened by United Theatres in February 1937. The opening programme featured Sonje Henie in “One in a Million” and Claire Trevor in “15 Maiden Lane” plus vaudeville on the stage including Billy Munro and His Orchestra. It had an interior decorated by interior designer Emmanuel Biffra. In 1950 the entrance facade was modified and a new marquee was added.
In 1968 it went over to screening X-Rated movies. In 1972 it played Charlie Chaplin movies for a year before switching back to adult movies. It closed in 1982 and was converted into retail stores. Last used for retail use and also a gymnasium, there were closed down due to the condition of the building, and it now sits empty and boarded up.
