News About This Theater

Picture Show

This cinema was opened December 15, 1989, for the Cineplex Odeon chain and is located at the Bloomingdale Court shopping center. The Village Theaters chain took over the cinema in 2000, the same year Village took over the nearby Stratford Square Cinemas.

In 2008, the FunAsia chain acquired the Bloomingdale Court Cinemas after the Village chain went out of business, and renamed the theater the FunAsia Bloomingdale showing Bollywood features. In August 2009, it was renamed Picture Show at Bloomingdale Court and became a second run theatre. By 2019 it was a first run movie theatre.

I’m glad to see that this place has re-opened. It looks like FunAsia really didn’t last very long. I wasn’t able to find a website for this theatre.

Just visited the newly renovated theatre yesterday and what is left from the Cineplex Odeon days is the “Now Showing” signs and the navy blue carpeting on the wall. What is gone is the zig-zag carpeting being replaced by tiles and new carpeting in the theaters, new seats in all theatres, new signage outside and the so-called “V” logo (in which Village Theatres took the original “C” from the Cineplex Odeon and make it into a “V”) has been replaced by the “Picture Show” logo. Bathrooms are clean as well as the theatres.

This is great news that some of these old theaters can live on as a second run. It’d be cool if the old theaters that village ruined like Lincoln Village or other long shuttered vacant theaters could be reopened. Especially given our economy, I think second run places like this could be very profitable-

Per your comment about Village Theatres, another person on this site said he believes that Village might have started out with good intentions but they had a lousy business plan.

It’s amazing that the Village North, North Riverside, and Bloomingdale Court made it out of Village alive and are doing well.

This theater is now showing films in 3D, which is remarkable for a second-run venue.

Correction: December 15th, 1989 grand opening ad in photo section.

Function should be changed to movies: first run. My grandson works here and loves the place. All modernized with reasonably priced concessions and admissions.
