This cinema opened on March 19, 1982, with its opening films including Raiders of the Lost Ark, Shoot the Moon, Deathtrap, and Night Crossing. From what I can tell from various listings, it did not expand in any way at all.

This Google Street View image from 2009 shows the original theatre structure after its conversion to a Goodlife gym. With the same entrance as seen here, the theatre had a narrow lobby down the centre with the concession stand on the right-hand side. Theatres 1 and 2 were to the left, 3 and 4 to the right (all were narrow auditoriums with single aisles down the middle). The old emergency exits for all four theatres (which were under the screens) can also be seen if you look closely. Around 2014, Goodlife moved to a different location in the mall and this exterior facade was rebuilt for Shoppers Drug Mart.
