The movie theater was called the Opera House. For some reason I remember seeing "Scanners" there. The bad guy's head explodes. (Perhaps that's why.) Here's a fun link to Opera House history:

Cool article; thanks for posting. I remember seeing Star Wars at the Opera House. Beautiful Theatre.

I remember going to some birthday parties at O'leary's. They'd serve the birthday person some sort of flaming Ice cream dish & firemen would rush out and extinguish the flames with whipped cream or some such. Remember it being a fun place.

There was a Lum's on E. Lancaster, too. The building is still there. Some sort of medical place now I think.

 

Firehouse Fandango (the ice cream / fireman dish above). Nice to read this as well as many other old threads.
