Mort Margolius was the Manager at this theatre during the war. During the war Queen Julianna of the Netherlands watched movies here. This theatre closed in the late 60’s. Closed circuit hockey broadcasts on a big screen EDIDOPHOR were tried out at this theatre!!

Correct CW. By 1982 the College theatre at College & Dovercourt was long gone, replaced with stores and apartments above them. The second College photo is of one on College in the Chinatown area, near Spadina Ave.

The 1982 picture is most likely of different College Theater.

I remember during the 60s the College was one of several “neighbourhood” theatres that together showed double-bills of recent movies that had finished their runs downtown, or sometimes had them “direct from downtown” for films that had been big hits. Other theatres on the list included the Alhambra, Beach, Palace, Parkdale, Runnymede, Vaughan, St Clair.
