Old theatre closing/new one opening

posted by ALLAN P. BARNES on January 5, 2009 at 7:50 am

After 13 years, on Friday December 19th 2008 the seven-screen Cineplex Odeon on Upper James in Hamilton, Ontario closed — the same day Cineplex officially opens its 10 screen complex (SilverCity Hamilton Mountain) five miles away in Stoney Creek. Construction took 7 months and the opening was delayed by 1 week. The general manager, Mr. Clive Thompson is well known in the community and runs a fine operation – he moves with his staff to the new location.

SilverCity Hamilton Mountain Cinemas at 795 Paramount Dr. in Stoney Creek features 10 screens — including two equipped for 3-D films — and more than 2,000 stadium-style rocker seats. The new location is only a miles from the recently rebuilt 3 screen Starlite Drive In Theatre owned & operated by Premiere Operating of Don Mills, Ontario.

I wonder if Rainbow Cinemas will pick up the Upper James? Most of their theatres are old Cineplex Odeons.

I guess Cineplex Odeon figures that one half of the mountain will go to the new SilverCity and the other half will go to the SilverCity Ancaster, since the Upper James was right in the middle of both of them.
