The above post by llgs is correct. A Google street view from November 2020 shows a vacant lot now where the Champlain once stood, so this theatre should be set to Demolished.

This theater was demolished in July 2020, after sitting abandoned and neglected for more than 15 years. Its complete destruction went ahead despite protest by Heritage Montreal (the city of Montreal seems intent and demolishing all remaining heritage theaters–take the recent destruction of the Snowdon and Empress in recent months!).

As usual, it is being replaced by condos.

This reopened as a twin cinema on July 16th, 1976, a day before the Olympic Games Opening Ceremonies a few Metro stops away. Grand opening ad in the photo section.

Here is an article about the opening from Boxoffice in April 1948:

Here is a 1989 photo I took of the theatre. It appears to have been a two-screener before it closed. In this photo it already is being used as a church, with its name, VIE ET REVEIL, on the marquee.
