The Balmoral Cinema was built in 1975 as part of the new Balmoral Shopping Center at Quince Road & Ridgeway Road. It was opened on October 17, 1975 with John Wayne in “Rooster Cogburn”. It had a single screen, and was the furthest east of the neighbourhood theatres, and the last built with only one screen. According to reports it struggled the entire ten years of its operation because of its small size, location in the back of the shopping center lot and the times - despite being twinned and even trying some live music. It was located in an open courtyard; a large grocery building later sealed off the east end of the courtyard making the cinema even more difficult to find, despite a marquee facing onto Quince Road.
The Balmoral Cinema closed in 1985 (according to City Directory listings) and the building hosted a variety of tenants and uses. It was demolished in July 2017.
