This theatre was a partnership theatre between Mr. Jack MacLennan and Famous Players Canadian Corporation. Mr. MacLennan passed away in 1965, so Famous Players bought the theatre from his widow and ran it successfully for many many years. The late Noella Desjardins (a top flight Manageress) ran this theatre for many years. She was well known and respected in the Brockville community!

Here is a postcard, circa 1940s. The notation of Main Street on the card is apparently incorrect.
