Famous Players opened the Victoria Terrace with six screens on May 24th, 1989, and closed in 2002. Grand opening ad posted. It was the first cinema with Digital sound in Canada in December 1992 with “Aladdin”.

I posted this on a comment, but this location had a “Famous Movie Shop” in one of the photos. Anyone know what was sold here? I would have loved to go home with a Famous Players Coffee Mug! ;)

What a stunning location this was and sad to hear it only lasted 13 years. That auditorium shot makes me want to see a 70mm presentation sitting about 5-6 rows back in the middle. Sad many of these theaters are gone.

Famous Movie Shops sold movie themed memorabilia of films that were playing there during this era, such as: Batman t-shirts, Star Trek Soundtrack tapes & compact discs etc. I don’t seem to recall any Famous Players branded logo products although it would have been nice. This concept unfortunately turned out to not be profitable after awhile & was quickly discontinued. Also Cineplex Odeon seemed to know better at the time and did not have similar shops in any of their new 80’s multiplexes.

Thanks for the info, theatrefan! The prices for those items were probably FAR higher than they were in other stores, so there wouldn’t be much value. I was more interested in if they had actual FP gear. ;)
