The fairly large Odeon and Paramount theatres dominated this stretch of Court Street across from Eatons department store and the Post Office in downtown Port Arthur, now the northern half of the city of Thunder Bay. The Odeon is located on the corner of Court Street South and Park Avenue.
The Odeon Port Arthur opened on November 4, 1948 with “Jassy” starring Margaret Lockwood. It was built by the British owned Rank Organisation, under their subsidiary Odeon Theatres Canada. The following day, they opened the Odeon Fort William, Thunder Bay.
In around 1965, it had a name change to Court Theatre. The Odeon was still in use in the 1980’s, but has most recently housed a nightclub, known as the Odeon Court, the 807 Club, and said in 2008 it could be re-named Flaminco Club.
