News About This Theater

Located in the Lavel Centre shopping centre. The 2-screen Cinema Lavel opened March 14, 1968 with Barbara Parkins in “Valley of the Dolls” & Melvyn Douglas in “Rapture” in screen 1 and Catherine Deneuve in “Belle de Jour” & “La Jument Verte” in screen 2. The theatre was expanded to 5 screens in 1975 and again into a 12-screen multiplex in 1991 making it the biggest theater in Quebec from 1991-1995.

The theater closed July 3, 2003, and was demolished shortly afterward to make way for retail stores.

This cinema’s final movies include Les Invasions Barbares, The Matrix: Reloaded, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, Bruce Almighty, Alex et Emma, From Justin to Kelly, La Matrice: Rechargée, Rugrats: Go Wild, Alex & Emma, Homicide à Hollywood, 2 Fast 2 Furious, and Bruce le Tout Puissant. I believe that Famous Players closed this one because they focused more on the Colossus nearby and avoided competition from Cinémas Guzzo’s Méga-Plex Pont-Viau.
