What's the Future Ever Done for Me?

Parkdale Odeon/ Now and Then

Parkdale Odeon/ Now and ThenI’ve lived in the neighbourhood for the past 25 years and had always suspected that this small grocery store was a former movie theatre. A little research on the City’s archive turned up this photo.

The Odeon Theatre 1919

The movie or Photo Play showing is Cecile B. DeMille’s “Don’t Change Your Husband”.

Released in 1919 and starring Gloria Swanson.
