Opened on April 19, 1979, the 18-screen complex was once cited in the Guinness Book of World Records and was an enormously popular venue for years. By no means a true Cinema Treasure, this theater once contained the world’s largest number of theaters in one multiplex, a forerunner of today’s megaplexes.
As the 1980’s and 1990’s wore on, however, the theater’s small screens began to fall out of favor with audiences and the multiplex was converted into a second-run house.
Unable to turn a profit, the theater finally closed on March 14, 2001, a victim of Loews' policy of retraction. It was demolished a few weeks after closing. Local moviegoers are not completely left in the dark, however, as the AMC Yonge & Dundas 24 opened nearby.
