Photos of the collapse

Filed under: The Revue Cinema — NorthRonces @ 6:49 pm

revue_collapse_1.jpg

While NorthRonces.com rushed out with digital camera in hand, due to technical difficulties the photos are still inside the camera. Luckily the Torontoist has linked to a number of shots of the poor old thing just before she was cut up and scooped into a bin.

[NB: By "cut up" I refer to the fact that the owners had the large "R" from the centre of the marquee, as well as the two neon "Revue" signs from either side, cut out of the wreckage and set aside for possible future restoration. Hopefully, these pieces will serve in the reconstruction of the marquee as a whole.]

  1. Good heavens what a disaster.

    “Save the Revue” seems like a even more desperate plea now!!

  2. Yes it was a shock to lose the Revue Cinema marquee. Such nostalgia.
    But I’m just letting you know not to worry as we are well on our
    way to re-activating the beautiful Revue Cinema. We *will* be seeing
    films there again!

    Please keep in touch through:
