When I moved to Vancouver in 1975, the Haida played second-run Hollywood movies; later on (1980s), it ran hardcore porn pictures edited for Canadian consumption. Not sure when it went to Indian fare.

I think it was opened in 1928 as The Carleton

I’ve checked for showtimes at different movie listing sites and there is nothing for the Collingwood at any of them. Likewise, the Collingwood website has not been updated since its closure last April, so on that account, I would guess that it has not reopened and is still closed.

This is now open again.

The Collingwood has closed its doors again, unfortunately. The theatre closed on April 30 due to a dispute between its management and the theatre’s landlord.

This theatre just reopened as the Collingwood Cinema. It’s being run by the former owners of the now-closed Denman Place Cinema.

Originally opened as the Kingsway in 1939 by Odeon Theaters until 1965. It was remodelled in 1966 and subsequently renamed the Haida. It was closed in 1991 and sold to new operators who would screen pornographic films and later East Indian films when the name was changed to Raja.
