A rather unremarkable triplex notable for being Brentwood’s first and only cinema to date. It was opened December 16, 1983. The cinema was razed within a few years of opening to allow for expansion of the Brentwood Plaza Shopping Centre.

I used to work at this theatre during high school. It didn’t have three screens, it had four screens. The largest auditorium of the four had a (small) stage, sound mixing booth, lighting rails in the ceiling, and a spotlight. The projection booth ran in a U-shape around the top of the lobby area, and had a batch of hanging pulleys so films could be transferred from one platter (screen) to another without respooling them to the shipping reels. At one time, the rumour was that the theatre was owned by Chris Clark of WTVF Channel 5 fame.

Actually, the theatre did only have three screens. Even though it closed back in 1992, it still holds a place in my heart – long after I left Carmike and the theatre exhibition industry.

When the theatre closed, I briefly met with Christ Clark and asked him about the theatre. He did indeed build it, and he said that he “put a lot of sweat and blood into that place” and was sorry to see it close.

Oh, the stories I could tell about that stage….
