I remember when this was the Downtown Famous Players.

One of the earliest theatres acquired by Famous Players Canadian Corporation in Vancouver. The original auditorium had a ceiling that consisted of glass with backlit lighting above it. Very interesting!!

That’s an older photo, the current sign has been there longer than 2009.

The information for this photo indicates that it was taken in 2009, apparently the signage was replaced.

Upon further research, the Dominion Theater was a prestigious venue actually built in 1907 by J.R. Muir and sat 1000 patrons.

There are show listing in a 1925 Vancouver Sun for the Dominion Theater so the official opening date is not 1929.

The theater was resurrected as a movie house by an independent chain and renamed Caprice Showcase Theater. It ran movies from 1992 until 1999. It is currently used as a Cabaret.
