Information for this tour was contributed by Grant Smith.
Cineplex Odeon opened the Trolley Square Cinemas on 28 June 1988 in the southwest corner of the Trolley Square mall. The theater had a more luxurious style than the other multiplexes of that time. The screens were covered with curtains and all four auditoriums were equipped with Dolby Stereo.
The theater closed on 26 February 2001 as part of Cineplex Odeon's bankruptcy.
Madstone Theaters reopened the theater on 8 August 2003, operating it as an art house. "The renovated theaters boast new projection and sound equipment, rows of seats broadly spaced so moviegoers can walk past without bumping knees, a lounge area with tables and big-screen TV, and a sparkling lobby opening out to Trolley Square's southern foyer and fountain."
