Though the Boxoffice article Tinseltoes linked to gives the architect’s name as Blackstein, the architect for the conversion of the Pace Twin into the Polo Park Theatre was Cecil Blankstein. His father, Max Blankstein, was architect of at least seven theaters, including Winnipeg’s Palace Theatre. Cecil Nathan Blankstein was the lead architect for the entire Polo Park Shopping Centre, and also designed Winnipeg’s Centennial Concert Hall.
