On June 30th, The Revue Cinema (along with fellow Festival Cinemas Royal, Kingsway, Paradise and Fox) is being shutdown. Having never ceased operations as a theatre since it was built in 1911, (making it the oldest continually run theatre in Ontario) this news is especially distressing. The architectural and historical heritage The Revue represents is important to the Roncesvalles landscape and must be protected!
In its current use, the Revue Cinema acts as a community gathering point that celebrates film, culture, and the arts. Further, the Revue Cinema is a business anchor that is critical to the economic vitality of the community.
We, the undersigned, insist that no structural changes be made to the building at this historical site.
