The 1953 British film The Kidnappers, also called The Little Kidnappers (in the U.S.)ran for 20 weeks here in 1954. That must have been some sort of record at a time when movies rarely played more than one to three weeks. The film featured Duncan Macrae, Jon Whiteley, Vincent Winter.

Here is a better link to that March 3, 1945 BOXOFFICE ARTICLE by Helen Kent, with photos of the Kent Theatre.

The Kent Theatre was designed by architect Henry E. Greenspoon. The Kent and another of Greenspoon’s pre-war designs, the Villeray Theatre on Rue St. Denis, were pictured in an article by Helen Kent in Boxoffice, March 3, 1945.
