Loved this theatre. It was one of a number of “sixplexes” FP opened around the same time including the Oakville Town Cenre, Gateway Six and Victoria Terrace. Probably would have lasted much longer if the “stadium seating” craze hadn’t hit yet.

Fun fact: this is the largest non English speaking cinema in Canada outside of Quebec.

The signage still has a outline calling the place, “Famous Players Centre” but the letter are blacked out, a hint of what this was before.

The cinema’s opening movies include The Bear, Family Business, Blaze, We’re No Angels, All Dogs Go to Heaven and The Little Mermaid. Its final day was March 8, 2001, with its closing movies including Dracula 2000, Unbreakable, Head Over Heels, Meet the Parents, 102 Dalmatians, and Vertical Limit. I know it re-opened in 2013 as York Cinemas, but I don’t know specifically since no Toronto newspaper I looked at mentions it.
