The Grant Park opened in 1969 with one giant Cinerama screen which showed the film "Krakatoa East Of Java". Built by National General Theatres in 1969 and sold to Odeon in the 1970’s, and later, to Cineplex Odeon.

The Grant Park was split into four screens in 1989 and four more stadium seating cinemas were added in 1998. The Grant Park Cinemas now has 2,200 seats. The theatre was sold to the Empire Theatres chain by Cineplex Entertainment in September 2005. In 2013 it was taken over by Landmark Cinemas.

After National General, the Canadian Theatres circuit ran the Grant Park from 1975 to 1978, then Odeon took over in 1978 and ran it until it went to Cineplex Odeon in 1984.

Landmark Cinemas took over the Grant Park 8 in 2013 following the split of Empire Theatres' assets, so this would now be the Landmark Grant Park.
