The Parliament Theatre was built by Bloom and Fine Theatres (B & F) around 1928 just prior to them becoming associated with Famous Players Canadian Corporation! Sam Bloom and Sam Fine were the owners!!

Chuck, I put the photo back as a link on the Parliament Cinema page; you might want to move it to the photos page there; if you do, I will remove my comment with the link. I should have probably let you do that, since you posted the photo originally.

Ken may have inadvertently removed some still valid commentary when he took out the now-extraneous, irrelevant, and/or inaccurate comments; let us hope contributors can or will restore pertinent information to the respective pages.

In my note to him, I pointed out that the Parliament Cinema was in fact the final name of the Gay/Bluebell and the B&W photo was on the wrong page. I did say that after the clean-ups were made, some comments could be removed, but the decision regarding which ones were his. At least, what is on both respective pages now appears accurate. I don’t know if any still-valuable comments could be restored; I would guess probably not.

This theatre should not be confused with the later Parliament Cinema which was also on Parliament Street, a few blocks away, and was only named that after this Parliament Theatre closed.
