Join us for our first in many film showings at The Biltmore Theatre.
Established in 1940 , Oshawa’s Biltmore Theatre is one of the original 5 Ontario theatres in the chain commissioned and built by the Okum Brothers of Toronto, later purchased by Odeon theatres the venue operated through until the late 80s as a seated film theatre before going dark and becoming a string of nightclubs and bars.
