When Famous Players Westmount opened in 1965 it was a single screen seating 750, known as the Sahara Theatre. It was located in the Westmount Shopping Centre at 111th Avenue & Groat Road. At that time it played a lot of road show engagements. In 1971 the theatre was twinned seating 1,300. Then in 1985 it was a fourplex seating 1,433.

In 2005 the cinemas were operated by Empire Theatres. The fourplex features automated box office, stadium seating and first run attractions.

It was closed on February 27, 2011.

The correct spelling should be “Westmount,” according to the Empre Theatres website.

Also, the theater’s AKA needs to be corrected.

The theatre first opened in 1959 as the Sahara. It became the Westmount in 1965 when Famous Players took it over, then it became a twin theatre (not a triplex) in 1971. The current fourplex opened in 1985 in another part of the mall.
