Famous Players Centre Eaton 6, opened in December of 1990, on the top floor of the Centre Eaton shopping mall.

When the brand new Paramount multiplex opened nearby in 1999, the Eaton 6 was demoted to a "move-over" house.

In June of 2005, it was sold to Cineplex, closing its doors perminantly three months later, on September 29th, 2005.

By December 2007, the space had become an internet lounge. By April 2013, it was a wax museum.

This place was sold just before I moved back to the States from Montreal but I didn’t know it had been closed. I had some of my favorite Montreal movie experiences here: laughing out loud so hard to Anchorman that I fell out of my seat; sneaking into The Two Towers even though I had already seen it; drinking beers on the sly while watching Land Of The Dead, hoping the beer would make the film better.

The Eaton was great: decent screens, cheap(ish) concessions, a chill staff who didn’t care if you stayed all day so long as you were discreet about it. Along with Cinema Du Parc, it was my prime cinema viewing station for those three years I was a grad student in Canada.

I dont remember how many films I may have seen here, but surely a number of them. However, I will always remember this as the cinema where I saw Spider-Man, back in 2002, at 8 years age. Since then started my love for superheroes and their genre of cinema!
