Scope and content

File consists of 10 theatre programs published by Pantages Theatre and the Canon Theatre. The theatre first opened in 1920 as the Pantages Theatre. In 1930 it was renaimed the Imperial Theatre, and became exclusively a cinema operated by Famous Players. In 1972 the Imperial closed, and was re-opened in 1973 as the Imperial 6. It then closed in 1986, and most of the building was taken over by Cineplex Odeon. In 1987 the theatre re-opened as the single-screen Pantages Theatre while Famous Players and Cineplex fought in a legal battle over the building. Eventually Famous Players agreed to sell their remaining portions of the original theatre to Cineplex Odeon, but under the agreement that it never be used for motion pictures. In 1988 the Pantages theatre closed to be restored to the way it was in 1920, and the new Pantages Theatre reopened in 1989. In 1999 ownership fell to Live Nation and management to Mirvish Productions, who announced a sponsorship for the theatre from Canon Canada, Inc. The theatre was renamed the Canon Theatre in 2001. In 2008 the Canon Theatre and the Panasonic Theatre were sold to Mirvish Productions, and in 2011 the Canon Theatre was renamed the Ed Mirvish Theatre.
