The last of the downtown cinemas to survive in North Bay, Ontario. It closed about 2002 still in intact, in orginal condition. It lived on for a while as a church hall. Its now a youth centre functioning as a nightclub on Friday and Saturday nights.

The simple but elegant interior included circular Deco style light fixtures on the side walls. The theatre has a mezzanine style balcony and always had a light colored interior. No interior pics seem to exist.

In its days as an Odeon Theatre, the exterior facade included a cantilevered marquee which was removed in the late 1970s. The film “Earthquake” played here in full Sensurround and “Titanic” had a long run here (although the sound quality was quite poor). The Odeon lives on as a movie theatre, only in memory now.
