1 person favorited this theater
Opened as the Princess Theatre in 1915, this cinema served Ottawa’s main department store street and the densely populated Byward Market area as a neighbourhood operation before expanding dramatically in 1930 to become a true flagship theatre for the Twentieth Century chain, under the name Rideau Theatre.
It was renovated several times, keeping its upstairs pool hall until the end (when it became a video arcade). The theatre played a variety of first-run fare. Its interior was one of Ottawa’s nicest.
The Rideau Theatre survived until 1982.
