This is one of the few remaining theater buildings in downtown Halifax. It opened as the Vogue Theatre on April 29, 1948 with Bing Crosby in “Blue Skies”. It was taken over by Famous Players in 1970. In 1972 it went over to screening adult movies and was renamed Eve Theatre. It became the Cove Theatre in 1974 and went back to mainstream releases. Closed by Famous Players on August 25, 1985.
In 1987 it became a gay bar & community centre named Rumours. In 1993 it returned to cinema use as a repertory theatre named Wormwoods Dog & Monkey Cinema, which closed in February 1998. In the early 2000’s, the owners planned renovations and were seeking buyers to stage live performances. This never came to fruition.
It became a boxing club in 2008. This was closed in 2011, and in 2012 building became a news studio for Global Television.
