Garneau Theatre

Operated for many years by the Magic Lantern Theatres division of Rainbow Cinemas, the 1940 Garneau Theatre is the only remaining theatre of its style and period in Alberta. Designed by noted Edmonton architect William Blakey, the Garneau Theatre remains one of the city’s most popular theatres, in part due to its proximity to the campus of the University of Alberta, which dominates the neighborhood. The theatre hosts the Edmonton International Film Festival.

It is now operated by the Metro Cinema Society.

This theatre was originally operated by the Famous Players Canadian Corporation right up to the late 90’s.

This theatre has had some close calls, but it’s good to see it’s still open. I’ve attended a couple films there and it’s a nice, old-school venue.
