Information for this tour was contributed by Andrew McCrea.
When it originally opened, in September 1964, it operated year round. It had speakers and heaters at every post, as well as heated sidewalks. It had one concession stand for popcorn and drinks, and another for fried chicken, pizza, burgers, fries, hot dogs, etc. It has since lost its pressure fryer and changeover projector, and now uses one of its original projectors with a platter system. Now operating from May-September, a petition of 11,333 signatures convinced Cineplex Odeon to keep the theatre open in 2004.
