Kent Theatre

The Kent Theatre was opened on May 23, 1946 with George Raft in “Johnny Angel” & Red Skelton in “Whistling in the Dark”. It was possibly the last building to be designed by Windsor based architect Guy Buller Colthurst as he was crushed to death when his car was in a collision with a train at the Essex Terminal Crossing on Ojibway Parkway on November 8, 1946. The Kent Theatre was independently operated, but was taken over by Odeon Theatres in 1947. It was operated by Famous Players from 1952 until it closed in 1956.

The building stood unused in January 2021.
