History courtesy of the Dundas Historical Museum. The Unique Theatre operated from 1909-1916 by the Paling Bros. at 18 King Street W. in Dundas. They sold in 1916 to Reg. L. Billington and he changed the name to the Strand Theatre and Mr. Billington operated it from 1916 to 1921. In 1921 the name changed to the Queen’s Theatre and it was operated by Guest & Billington.

In 1928 Reg. L. Billington bought the Swanson property next door to the theatre and moved the house to 24 King Street. W. In 1928 Billington sold the property where the Queen’s Theatre stood to John Craven who constructed a furniture store there and Billington constructed a new movie theatre on the old Swanson property and called it the Majestic Theatre.
