News About This Theater
Located in the Elane Plaza on the northeast corner of Danforth Road and Eglinton Avenue, opened July 4, 1963.
The theatre was then just east (across the road) of the busy Sayvette’s grocery store and surrounded by highrise apartments. However, after Sayvettes closed and new multi-theatre cinemas opened the theatre struggled for business. The Sayvettes is currently a No Frills grocery store (as of July 2008).
The Elane Theatre closed circa 1985
After suffering to stay afloat, the entire Elane Plaza sold to a developer and demolished in 2006. A housing subdidision was built in its place.
I went to the Elane a number of times as a kid and I’ll miss it and that entire Elane Plaza, even though I got to see it in it’s ugly days towards the end.
Anybody else here have a membership to Bandito Video from the Elane Plaza? Ahhh, the days of expensive VHS tapes, but mostly renting original NES video games!
