Century Theatre London was originally built and operated by Loew’s Theatres — it was quite ornate. Nat Taylor’s Twinex Century Theatres (a Famous Player partner) took it over in 1964 and made it into two fairly nice theatres. The smaller theatre (The Little Century) was a bit too shotgun in its approach for me. Mike Rogers and TS Loews I just want you guys to know that I hung around and knew this one very well!!

Thanks for the post Mike I had forgotten about this one, old age is setting in I guess. Love the photo of the Loews London, in Canada of all places. By the way do you ever save any photos on your computer?

This was the sister theatre to Windsor Ontarios Capitol which is on the endangered list.
