Opened as the Maple Leaf Electric Theatre on March 17, 1908. Following a remodel by architect Thomas L. Kerr it became the Plaza Theatre on September 2, 1936 with William Powell in “Escapade”. This 925-seat movie house was renamed the Odeon on March 20, 1963, when it was acquired by the theatre chain of the same name.
Closed in 1991, the Odeon was reopened in 1997, but within a year, was closed once more.
In 1999, the former theatre was converted into a two-level nightclub/live performance space, its marquee retained, called the Plaza Club. Renovations were carried out in the Summer of 2009, and it reopened as The Venue, a nightclub and concert venue. It was closed around 2020 and the building stands vacant in 2023.
