The Classic Theatre in Cobalt, Ontario was owned and operated by Premier Operating Corporation, an operating partner of the dominant Famous Players Canadian Corporation circuit, and showed movies from the 20’s up to about 1970. This theatre was solely a movie house until about 15 years ago when it was thoroughly restored and used as a performing arts centre for the community. During the hey day of movies there were actually 3 movie theatres in Cobalt. Premier Operating (Famous Players) had another theatre called the Bijou which they kept closed and ready to re-open anytime should some fool decide to open as opposition to them!!
