The ORIGINAL Square One cinemas opened in 1971 with four screens with an awesome lobby. This was built by Famous Players Canadian Corporation and jointly operated with our associates, Twentieth Century Theatres!!

I would have thought that too Jason, but the Silvercity Oakville has VIP screens and technically the Winston Churchill is in Oakville so I don’t think they will. I’m wondering if they will open another Silvercity elsewhere in Mississauga since there are several areas of the city without a theatre nearby. For a city of it’s size, it is now left with 3 multiplexes, 2 of which are city centre and one older style 4 screen mall cinema, also near city centre. No one has built anything south of the QEW.

Looks like Landmark can’t touch that theatre (I doubt Rainbow Cinemas would pick up the scraps left by SC, for instance, Carlton was saved by Rainbow).

This theatre’s seat count when it opened was 2988. Unfortunately, I don’t know its count after UltraAVX was installed. It also cost CA$4.5 million to build. I got all this info from a Toronto Star article on December 5, 1997, comparing megaplex theatres to cruise ships.

Typically AVX conversions would lose about 30-50 seats depending on the auditorium, and about 60-80 if DBOX seats were installed in a few rows.

On another note, always love when you post the list of opening/closing movies!
