Famous Players: Oakville Town Centre Cinemas

The Oakville Town Centre Cinemas were operated by Famous Players and opened on Friday June 23rd 1989.

The cinema had six screens and instead of numbering them they went by names.

Alto-Bijou-Majestic-Olympia-Palace-Rio

On opening day there were three features playing “Batman”, “Dead Poets Society”, and “Honey I Shrunk The Kids”.

The cinema was located at the west end of the Oakville Town Centre shopping centre which has been renamed Dorval Crossing

A Staples Business Depot now occupies the unit where the cinema had been.

One of my all time favourites of all the “sixplexes” Famous Players built across the country in the 80s. Especially loved the lobby which was like a town setting, with it’s sky blue ceiling and each cinema with it’s different name on different marquees and signs to look like a main street somewhere. Very imaginative. Too bad it didn’t last much much longer, but soon the multiplex/curved screen/stadium seating hit and this was a goner. Although the Cineplex Odeon built around the same time also in Oakville still survives as the Encore Oakville Mews.
