I managed the Algoma Theatre in Sault Ste Marie for a short time in 1979. This was then known as The Odeon Theatre and Mrs. Gayle Ostrowski was the manager. Nice memories!

The January 2, 1949 issue of Boxoffice carried a brief item noting the recent opening of the Okun Bros. new Biltmore Theatre at Soult Ste. Marie. Other houses then operated by the Biltmore Theatres Ltd. chain were Biltmores at Oshawa, Kingston, New Toronto, and the flagship house on Yonge Street in Toronto. A year later the chain would open the Biltmore at Kitchener and in 1951 the Savoy would open as their second house on Yonge Street. As far as I’ve been able to discover, that was the chain’s peak.

It’s possible, but not yet confirmed, that the Sault Ste. Marie Biltmore was designed by Toronto architect S. Devore, who designed the Biltmore and Savoy on Yonge Street. The Sault house bears a strong resemblance to the two in Toronto, as well as to the Biltmore in Kitchener, which might also have been of Devore’s design.
