Currently, the Mount Pleasant is an independent theatre. The previous owner, Famous Players, purchased the theatre as well as the Regent and the Westdale in Hamilton from the previous owner, Ontario Theatre Group. The Mount Pleasant was the corporate office for this small chain that had theatres in smaller centres that Cinplex Odeon or Famous Players did not want to touch. Famous Players only had the theatre for several years and did not need either the Mount Pleasant or the Regent, once the Silvercity at Yonge and Eglinton was built and in operation. Currently, the theatre programming is movies that have played at either the Famous Players Canada Square or the Silvercity Yonge-Eglinton. One of the few remaining neighbourhood theatres left in Toronto.

Actually at the time the Silver City at Yonge and Eglinto was built Famous Players did not own either the Regent or the Mount Pleasent. Both theatres are independently owned by the same onwer who also happens to own Central Parkway Cinemas and a theatre in Pembroke. There used to be an agreement between the owners of the theatres and Famous Players regarding film movement and advertising but I am not sure if that is still in place. Now that the Eglinton is closed they are the 2 nicest single screens left. It was this theatre chain that first brought into practice the mom’s and babies shows that Famous started to use shortly after.

Saw a pristine print of ‘Blade Runner: The Final Cut’ here a couple of years ago when Warner Home Video had put out a few prints in limited release to promote the DVD and Blu-ray release.

It is now perhaps the finest neighbourhood single screen left in Toronto; cherish it people, cherish it!

Just noticed the comment posted by IanG about seeing Blade Runner at the Mt. Pleasant. In actual fact, the film was shown at the Regent theatre which is located a block or two south of the Mt. Pleasant. He got one thing right though, the theatre he saw Blade Runner in (the Regent) is the finest single screen neighbourhood cinema left in Toronto… followed closely by the Royal. Both operated by the same company.
