Kencmcintyre, I uploaded ALL of the ad for the Ridge Cinemas in the photo section for this cinema. They ran the same ad for the Le Fabourg Cinemas in Montreal and Cinemas Place Charest in Quebec City.

I loved working there, and I loved going to movies there.

Marbel lined floors and columns. Large concession stands. Spacious lobby. Comfortable seats. A true palace.

Sue P. we had a great time working side by side. I have lots of pictures from the construction stages of the theater.

I remember while the theater was still under construction, going to lunch with the contactors at Portillo’s.

I remember seeing Air Force One here and also when some boxing movie (one of the Rocky’s maybe?) came out, they BUILT an almost full sized ring in the lobby.

The theater was nice. My only visit was in 2000 to see “Space Cowboys” I was the only person in the theater.

Sad to see that this theater is now gone. When we lived in the area and were dating I used to take my wife there all the time.
