The Crowsnest Theatre was a seasonal operation in the little town of Tobermory at the tip of Ontario’s Bruce Peninsula. It was a conversion of a former automobile service bay and was attached to a building housing a café and gift shop. It operated from approximately May through September from about the mid-1970’s into the 1980’s and possibly later. It was decorated in a a simple rustic style and had benches for seats. The theater presented documentary films of interest to the tourists and the scuba divers that come to Tobermory (which is rather reminiscent of Bodega Bay as portrayed in Alfred Hitchcock’s "The Birds").

Many of the films showed the shipwrecks and other underwater sites of the Fathom Five Underwater Provincial Park and other area sites such as Flower Pot Island and Manitoulin Island, as well as short films from Canada’s National Film Board.

The theater became part of The Crowsnest Restaurant and Pub and featured live entertainment on summer weekends. It was destroyed by fire in 2010.

The Crowsnest Pub burned down in 2010, apparently destroying any traces of the former part of the building that housed the theatre. The rebuilt structure now on the site looks substantially different than the former structure.
