Administrative history

Cinéma Opéra, established by Philias Blouin held its first film showing in Coaticook in January 1945 in the Main Street building which previously served as the Opera House. In order to convert the facilities from theatre to film presentations, a screen and projector were installed and the original wooden seats were replaced with 450 padded seats. Cinéma Opéra’s final presentation was in July 1981. Following the building’s sale to a machinery dealership, it was demolished and turned into a parking lot.
