When I lived in Edmonton the first time for 7 months, basically the end of ‘06 to mid-July '07, I went here a lot, it was a cheap theatre like the Cineplex in the west food court in WEM. It didn’t show South Asian movies back then.

Sad that it closed. It was a great cheap theater with an awesome classic movie theatre interior, and it had great arcade games as well! I saw Tom & Jerry and Lightyear here. I know that some of the last second-run movies shown here were Black Adam and DC League of Super Pets.

Updated with some public domain pictures of what I could find with a few auditorium, lobby and hallway shots.

This location closed on January 8th, 2023.

This was a prime location for a lot of South Asian titles and running some movies at discounts in Edmonton. I can imagine attendance declined heavily at this location and Cineplex wants to push more premium offerings, and this theatre never updated from its original Cinemark look either.

This opened on May 17th, 1996 by Cinemark Theatres. This theatre has the same design as Movies 12 in Laredo, TX. Still wearing the old Cinemark logo in neon.

Cinemark runs the sucessful Tinsletown 12 in downtown Vancouver. They were also going to build a multiplex in Toronto in the late 90s but shelved those plans so Cineplex Odeon purchased the site and built one of their highest grossing locations, The Queensway 18. Strange how AMC has 7 locations in 3 different cities in Canada, with an 8th opening up next year but Cinemark pulled back. The chain that I WISH would come to Canada is Landmark Theatres, not to be confused with the western Canadian chain. They seem to do well with restored older theatres and run them showing a mixture of art films and independent films
