The Meadowlark Cinerama was opened on December 25, 1969 with Maximillian Schell in “Krakatoa, East of Java” presented in Cinerama. Located at the Meadowlark Shopping Centre, it was operated by the National General Corporation. The 778-seat single-screen house was used for Cinerama presentations for its first year. The curved louvered screen was 50ft wide and 25ft high.
Canadian Theatres took over the Meadowlark in 1974, followed by Odeon on 1978 and then Cineplex Odeon in 1984. The Meadowlark closed in 1992 and was demolished later that year.
