Parkdale Odeon/ Now and Then

I'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.
Another view with the Odeon in the foreground looking east towards Fuller Ave.
