With the takeover, the YFS has gone about restoring the theatre, starting with cleaning carpets and seating, replacing broken seats and fixing lighting. It has also restored the original Yukon Theatre name to the venue.

The YFS also has a long-term plan to remove the wall separating the two cinemas and adding in a larger screen to turn it back into a single theatre as it had originally been.
