The former Yukon Cinema Centre was reopened by new owners on December 10, 2021 and is being leased by the Yukon Film Society for movie screenings:

Yukon Theatre reopening Dec. 10

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.

Am pretty sure I saw one of the worst movies ever Bunny O'Hare with Bette Davis & Ernest Borgnine here in 1972
