Alex Winds sold the Rex to "Pop" Eliiott in 1918. Mr. Elliott ran the theater for the next thirty years, until he sold it to his son-in-law.

Twenty four seats from the former Rex Theater have been installed in the Sunset Theater located in Wells, British Columbia.

I don’t know Chuck. The 1990 Film Canada Yearbook lists the Carib as a twin screen with no seat count given.

If the 150 seat count given above is correct, they were most likely different theaters. In 1980 the Carib is listed as a single screen with 499 seats.

Hi all, I am new to the site and looking for help. I am a researcher on a book dealing with cinema in British Columbia. I would love to include reminiscences about specific theatres, photos, or any information about how film and theatres in general affected your life and/or community. This would include rented films, documentaries from libraries, as well as local theatres or film study groups. Any information you would like to share would be most welcome.

Anyone interested can contact me at

Thanks for sharing your love of movies!
