Built in Art Deco style by E. L. Farrow & Sons it opened in 1937. It closed in 1979 when the Square One Cinemas opened. In 1980 it became Universal Jewellers and was occupied by Remenyi House of Music by 1979 previous to its current use.

Great photo but couldn’t it be uploaded to the photo section. Links are easily broken.

The movie listed on the marquee was released in 1963, so the photo would have been taken at a later date than 1950.

The re-opening as the Credit Cinema took place on June 10th, 1971 with a double feature of HOW TO SUCCEED WITH SEX and NAKED AND FREE.

Here is a picture of the former Vogue Theatre in Port credit; when the picture was taken, the former theater was serving as a music store.

I grew up about a block away from this theatre so this was where I went often as a child. After 1970 it was renovated and re-opened as the Credit Cinema which lasted a few more years. Then it closed for good as a theatre and for years was a high class jewellery store. For the past several years it has been a restaurant/billiard hall called The Crooked Cue. The Credit cinema would have made a great reportory theatre back when there was the Festival chain of old cinemas. Since it’s demise, there has never been any theatre of any kind in what is now Southern Mississauga, south of the QEW highway. Not even a multiplex

According to this site, the Vogue was converted into a pool hall some time ago:
