Actually,it was demolished in 2001 along with the entire mall which was completely vacant except for the 6 plex.This was never a single screen theatre,it opened in 1976-77 as a 3 plex and expanded to 6 in 1986ish.It was a Famous Players complex.

Does anyone know anything about the Majestic Theatre, on Dundas Street (between Clarence and Wellington)? I have a vintage postcard showing the Majestic (Dundas, looking east from Clarence). The google view shows the facade still existing (and restored) at 231 Dundas Street and the building, to the right, still standing as well. Was this the entrance building to the theater? The google view shows the City Plaza, to the rear on King Street. Did it eventually show movies?

Also, was there an Avon Theatre in London? It had the same styled marquee as the Avon in Hamilton. I haven’t been in the London area in over 10 years…

Wow. I just discovered the google satellite shots!
The whole Majestic Theatre building seems to exist. Does the original interior exist? Anybody know? I can’t find any mention of it on any of the city history sites or elsewhere.

The London Mews Theatre was a fairly plain theatre in a mall that kept ongoing down hill!! Towards the end of the mall’s life — this movie theatre was the only tenant and you had to go by dozens of closed stores to get to the theatre which didn’t help. In the latter years this mall was renamed Smuggler’s Cove —– nice eh. Heinz Behnke and Doug Coulter among others managed this theatre. This was a Famous Players Theatre now long gone!!!
