July 6, 1972: Theatre Changes Hands

Mr. Lloyd Johnston is retiring after operating the Tivoli Theatre for 34 years.

He has sold the theatre to Al Olsenberg, who comes here from Grand Cache, near Grande Prairie, Alta., where he operated the Alpine Theatre.

Mr. Johnston built the Tivoli in 1938. Originally from Fernie, he had operated the theatre in Kimberley from 1935.

He and Mrs. Johnston, who assisted in operation of the Tivoli, are retiring to their home at twin Bays.

Mr. and Mrs. Olsenberg will operate the theatre under the name A-M Crest Cinema, “Your cinema in motion.” Daughter Mona will look after the concession. Son Cory, like his father, is a projectionist. The Olsenbergs have two other daughters, Shelley and Lynn ann.

Mr. Olsenberg states renovations to the building include repainting the front. A new sign is arriving. The acoustics will be improved. He plans to run more shows and also a Saturday matinee.

Additionally The Alderson’s owned it late `70s per one comment.

This Theatre was opened in Nov 1938. The current Owners are Bonnie & Robert Geddes. The seating capacity is now 250 persons. The Tivoli Theatre has been fully updated with digital projection equipment & sound systems. While the interior & exterior have also been updated, it was done maintaining the integrity of the original Art Deco style.
