The theatre opened in 1953 and continued into the mid-1980s. I remember seeing a number of Italian-language films here around that time when a local Italian film presenter used the theatre for that purpose. In August of 1985 I actually went to see E.T.– L'EXTRATERRESTRE, Spielberg’s film dubbed in Italian! I think the small lobby had a small religious grotto with fountain. Does anyone have any further information on this place?

Address correction….should be 8823 Boul. St Laurent, otherwise MapQuest is stumped. As with everything in the province of Quebec these days only the french spelling is acceptable. Go figure.
