I used to work in the Daylight Theatre in the early-1960’s. I did secretarial work during the day and worked in the box-office in evenings. It was across the street from the very elegant, palatial Capitol Theatre on Second Avenue in Saskatoon. I knew nothing about styles of design back then, so have no idea what style it was.
The Daylight Theatre operated from 1917, until Famous Players closed it in 1965. It was remodeled and reopened on September 1, 1966 as the Paramount Theatre, screening “My Fair Lady”.
I haven’t lived in Saskatoon for years. Other old theatres in Saskatoon that are listed on this site are the Tivoli/Odeon Theatre, also on 2nd Avenue and the Victory Theatre on E. 20th Street. I used to frequent all these theatres, along with the Roxy Theatre and Capitol Theatre as a child, and I am now in my sixties, so the theatres were pretty old.
The Paramount Theatre was closed in the early-1980’s. As of July 2009, a business called Paramount Optical is among the cluster of shops which occupy its former address.
