Part of downtown Victoria’s old “Theatre Row” which also contained the Haida, the Odeon and the Capitol. The last two theatres still stand as first-run multiplexes by Cineplex Odeon and Empire Theatres, respectively.

Building has been completely demolished and a new office building stands in its place.

Was a very good theatre in the day. Many seats, huge screens and also ran 70mm/6 track engagements.

“Eric C. Clarkson designed the Coronet Theatre (1936)” University of Victoria

The style is Art Deco/Moderne

It was not completely demolished. It closed in 1990 and is being used as office space. The exterior has been preserved.

This theatre first opened as the Atlas in 1946. I think it actually was renamed the Coronet in about 1965 or 1966 because it was listed as the Coronet at this address in the 1966 Victoria Yellow Pages.

Closed, but not demolished…
