Right across the street from the train station.

Here’s an interview with the current owners. Not much history, but he says the theater has been there since 1928 and he has been running it since 1972.

But this entry from a self-guided tour says otherwise.

Chaba Theatre Located next door at 604 Connaught Drive For a place that was named after the Stoney Aboriginal word for ‘beaver’, in 1923 you were more likely to have a Santa Claus sighting or spy a star on the silver screen than spot any long tails and tall teeth. The Chaba theatre was built for $5000 and worth every penny for the families who enjoyed this still-cherished community landmark. Talent shows, stage performances and free movies lit up the stage that was also used for Christmas visits from Santa, who would delight the little ones with candies and stories.
