As noted above, this was originally part of the Caprice Showcase Theatres chain when it first opened on May 19, 1999 (Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace premiered there the same day the theatre opened).

Galaxy Cinemas Nanaimo became the theatre’s present name since 2000 and has been maintained by Cineplex since 2003. What I mean “Cineplex” is the current company that is a byproduct of the merger of Galaxy and the Canadian assets of Loews Cineplex that became Cineplex Galaxy (until 2005 that is).
