The theater was resurrected as a movie house by an independent chain and renamed Caprice Showcase Theater. It ran movies from 1992 until 1999. It is currently used as a Cabaret.

Just for clarification, there were two Pantages Theater in Vancouver at one time. The first was built in 1907 and opened to the public on January 6, 1908. This is not the structured designed by Architect B. Marcus Priteca. The original, at 152 East Hastings operated as the Pantages from 1907 to about 1930. It later became the State (which also had live burlesque performances),Avon, City Lights and Sun Sing Theater showing Chinese movies.

Was once part of the Odeon chain. Later screened mainly double and triple bills. Was also known as the Eden Lux showing pornographic films. One of its last incarnations was a night club/bar.
