Opened on March 7, 1930 with Lupe Velez in “Tiger Rose” and Jack Buchanan in “Paris”. The Monkland Theatre was considered the best ‘Atmospheric’ style movie theatre in Montreal. Interior decorations were carried out by interior designer Emmanuel Briffa.
It was located on Avenue Monkland in the West End district of the city and was built for and operated by the United Amusement Theatres chain.
The Monkland Theatre normally played double-bill features and it was well maintained right up until United Amusement Theatres closed it as a regular movie theatre in 1981. It had a short period of use as a repertory house and was and was then gutted in 1985.
Today the building is in various commercial uses.
