I made a major discovery thanks to you. I discovered that the Palace theatre wich was situated at 3841 Wellington was converted and replaced by the Cinéma Verdun Odéon as you can see from the photos. I took the top photo on the 21st of April 2007. The same sign was modified by adding the Odeon sign on top of the canopy wich was later removed and a publicity window was built into the wall on the left. The front of the building on the left was renovated but my guess is that the orginal structure was kept as we all know how well these buildings were constructed in the good old days.I got this information from the Lovell directory 1974-75. The movie that appeared reads: Tremblement, 2 ième, Airport wich I believe was a sequal to the first movie in wich included Charlton Heston, Richard Windmark and many other top actors of the day many of wich are no longer with us. And look at that crowd, unbelievable don't you think, considering it being the TV era. Reminds me of the days in the 40s and 50s when we would line up in front of the 4 Verdun theatres. I saw many serial and cowboy movies in that theatre in the 40s and for only .10.
Nobody seemed to be aware of the exhistance of the Odeon theatre specially since I have been doing research on the subject for the past 4 or 5 years, not even in our own society (SHGV). This is a major addition to our archives.
P.N. For those who don't know, The Palace was situated on the north side of Wellington between Church and Hickson.
