Eastwood Theatre

From its opening in 1927 to 1966, this theatre was known as the Eastwood Theatre.

It was closed until 1972 when it briefly reopened that year as the Naaz Theatre, showing East Indian films, but closed as a movie house for good before the year was over. It is now an Indian restaurant.

The Naaz theatre operated until the mid 80’s with the auditorium on the upper level for after the renovation the floor was raised putting a mall underneath it I was the projectionist there from 1978-1984

This theatre was a B & F Theatre (Bloom & Fine). Sam Bloom and Sam Fine were partners of Famous Players Canadian Corporation. There were 3 three theatres pooled together — The Eastwood, the Prince of Wales, and one more. The operating company was called Danforth Woodbine Theatre Operating. W. A. Summerville was the owner of the Prince of Wales and vice-president of Famous Players. These theatres were joined together to prevent competition and maximize the profits!!
