The Rainbow Cinemas opened on September 15, 1995, as the city’s primary second-run movie house.

It’s lure of cheap admission and larger selection led to the demise of the Place Riel Theatre, which up until that point, had served the market the Rainbow Cinemas now filled. The Rainbow Cinemas were closed in 2020.

Rainbow is on the south side of the mall where the iconic (and much missed) Jumbo Video used to be located. Both it and Odeon Centre, along with a neighboring dollar store, take up the space formerly occupied by Dominion grocery stores, which in turn became a disastrous attempt by the former Wildwood Mall to start its own food court prior to it merging with the bigger mall across the street.

This opened on September 15th, 1995 by Rainbow cinema as a discount complement to the first-run cinemas across the hall.

On May 29th, 2018, CBC reports that the Rainbow cinemas will close on May 2020 as Cineplex does not want any competition in the mall.
