Plitt theatres opened the 8th Street Marketplace Cinemas on December 14th, 1979, with “The Jerk” and “Kramer Vs. Kramer”. There were plans for Cineplex Odeon to replace this with a 16-plex in the style of the St. Bruno Cinemas near Montréal for 1998 but cancelled after they heard of the Edwards megaplex.
