Oliver Theatre (Official)
Functions: Movies (First Run)
Styles: Streamline Moderne
Opened in 1947, this little gem with its handsome exclamation-point of a blade sign shines like a beacon in my memories of the Okanagan Valley. Serving as a trusty anchor for downtown Oliver, the remarkably intact theatre was a refreshing sight in the midst of an area where development is threatening the landscape and historic buildings at an alarming rate.

Here’s another view from across the street.
Hi all, I am new to the site and looking for help. I am a researcher on a book dealing with cinema in British Columbia. I would love to include reminiscences about specific theatres, photos, or any information about how film and theatres in general affected your life and/or community. This would include rented films, documentaries from libraries, as well as local theatres or film study groups. Any information you would like to share would be most welcome.
Anyone interested can contact me at
Thanks for sharing your love of movies!
