Théâtre Prospero (former La Québécoise 2) exterior

This was first known as the Theatre Lune Rousse in 1911 and changed to Cameo in 1925. It ceased running advertisements in La Presse in 1965. Nick Palmero reopens it as Cinéma La Québécoise 2: Marquis presenting adult films with children’s matinees on the weekends on August 6th, 1971. It was taken over by the Prospero theatre, who dismantled it and rebuilt it in 1994–1995 after it ceased playing movies in 1984.
