As a kid, I saw many films at the Runnymede Theatre. I saw a Star Trek there, the second Poltergeist movie, a Lethal Weapon, Beatlejuice, and a bunch of others. It was a great little theatre on Bloor near Runnymede.
Then, it became a Chapters. Chapters did a great job of paying tribute to the old theatre. We were all pleased.
Then, it became a Shoppers Drug Mart. Last Thursday afternoon, I popped my head in to see how it looked.
I'm pleased to report SDM did a fine job maintaining the old infrastructure. Here are some pics that show the Runnymede Theatre is alive and well, it's just selling cosmetics and ibuprofen now.
