Opened December 22, 1948 with Bette Davis in “June Bride”. Cobourg’s Park Theatre was built by longtime summer resident Jule Allen of the Durland Theatre Chain. Noted Canadian theatre architect Herbert G. Duerr, created the Park Theatre’s design and local builder Charles Jackson undertook the ambitious project. It was in 1948 described as ‘The last word in modern designing, both from an aesthetic and scientific aspect’.
The Park Theatre featured the newest of sound equipment, air conditioning, 750 spacious seats and a special seat-based equipment for the deaf. The theatre was one of the finest in Canada in its day.
