Main Cinema Corridor

This theater opened back in 1985 by Cineplex Odeon at the Canada Square shopping center. Loews Cineplex closed down the Canada Square cinemas because of their near bankruptcy and the new Silvercity north of the street. Rather then expanding the Silvercity at Yonge and Eglinton Center because of limited space, Famous Players quickly bought the Canada Square cinemas. This is the last non branded Famous Players theater before the company was bought by Cineplex back in 2005. The theatre still has the original 1985 interior and it sometimes plays art films.

Could somebody in Toronto please take pictures of the Canada Square Cinemas, before it either dissapears or has its original interior renovated (if it hasn’t been already)?

A little late, Azzaelea, but here I’ve uploaded two photos I took of the interior back in September 2010. The theatre was pretty dead when I was there…

This theatre has a similar design to the Oakville Mews. Any other Drabinsky era Cineplexes still around with the original interiors?

You forget from 1998-2001, this theatre was part of Loews Cineplex, since Cineplex Odeon operated in from 1985-1998. Since 2005, Cineplex Entertainment owns this theatre.
