This theatre probably have the distinction being the last Famous Players.

Was this the last “ Famous Players ” ? Or the last VIACOM?

Most if all the Silvercities and associated complexes were funded by VIACOM ( Paramount Pictures,etc ) and were branded and operated under the Famous Players name.

If FP really owned these they would have been able to pony up the dough for the wheelchair upgrades that ended an era in Toronto Cinema over the Uptown closure back in 2003.

This is the theater I have gone to most in the past 4-5 years. Like these people said before, I remember years ago, I do not remember when, that this was called the Paramount Theater.

How many levels does this theatre have? How many cinemas per level? I remember the old Capitol 6 and the big one on the main floor, 2 and 3 on the next floor and 4,5 and 6 on the next level. Always thought that was a neat way of distributing all the screens throughout the building.

This theatre and others were originally called PARAMOUNT. What a damn shame that Scotia Bank actually got naming rights to these theatres as part of a marketing ploy. THE ROYAL BANK was Famous Players Canadian Corporation’s bank of choice!!!

The first level has the box office. The second level has Cinemas 1, 2 & 3 and the top level has Cinemas 4-9. It is a fair distance from the box office to cinema #9 by the way.

This is also one of the first Cineplex locations to have TWO Ultra AVX theaters. #1 (formerly 467 seats, now 420) was installed first, then #2 was converted in November of 2013. #2 had the first Dolby Atmos installation in BC.
