The exterior of this theatre shows up in the 2007 movie “Blue State.” Ostensibly set in San Francisco, the film was primarily shot in Canada.

The Park was purchased in 1930 by Rudolph Besler who immediately upgraded the theatre for talkies. It underwent at least two remodellings during the years while owned by the Beslers. Original seating capacity was 729. The current V shaped marquee has existed at least since the late 1940’s. Under their ownership the Park was an independently run mom & pop venue. Late run double features were shown along with Saturday kids matinees. The Beslers retired in 1965, but the theatre continued to operate until 1986 when it was finally closed. Extensively remodelled and reopened again in 2005 by Erick and Melanie Casselman as a theatre and dessert cafe, the Park now offers a mix of live entertainment along with movie screenings, as well as DVD rentals. It is also available for private bookings.
