The web site of the Biltmore Theatre in Oshawa lists the openings of the other houses in the Okun Bros. Biltmore chain, and says that the Kitchener house opened in December, 1949. It is very likely, though not yet confirmed, that the Kitchener Biltmore was designed by Toronto architect S. Devore, who designed the Biltmore and Savoy Theatres on Yonge Street in Toronto for the same chain (the Savoy’s fa├žade is almost identical to that of the Kitchener Biltmore), and might also have designed the Biltmore in Sault Ste. Marie.

If this is where the Stages Niteclub was then it is now closed even for that purpose.Many of the theatres on king street were changed into Clubs.This created a zoo downtown of drunks and drug dealers.All of the clubs are closed just like their predicetors and the downtown core is starting to clean up.
