This modern theater is probably named for an earlier Olympia Theatre in Assiniboia, probably the one on Main Street mentioned in the previous comment by TivFan. It’s possible that that house dated back to at least as early as 1921, when an Olympia Theatre was the only house at Assiniboia on a list of theaters found in a provincial directory published that year.

I have a postcard (early 1960’s?) of Assiniboia, with four color photos. The upper left photo is identified on the back of the card as: Main Street looking North. The photo is quite small, but you can clearly see the vertical OLYMPIA sign, with THEATRE underneath (horizontally). There also appears to be a canopy/marquee. It doesn’t sound like the same Olympia described above…
