Abstract (Document Summary)

Two generations grew up with the Alhambra theatre on Bloor St. W. just east of Bathurst. It later became the Baronette and then, in the early 1970s, the Eve, a soft-core porn house. Operators of the Eve moved out recently and relocated, as Eve's Paradise, farther west on Bloor St.

Remember the large, still classy and comfortable Vaughan theatre at St. Clair and Vaughan? Used as a bingo parlor in the 1970s, it was a studio for Multilingual Television (Channel 47) and then used to show art movies, repertory classics and briefly for live theatre.

An early print of Heartburn, starring Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep and directed by Mike Nichols, will be shown to the public at 8 p.m. at the Plaza 1 theatre at Yonge and Bloor Sts. A clutch of Paramount Pictures executives and maybe Nichols, too, will be on hand to gauge reactions.
