Part of The Revue Cinema’s Lobby Ceiling Collapsed, But It’s Apparently No Big Deal

The theatre's management says they'll be reopening soon.

There was momentary panic among west-end cinephiles on Saturday, when the Revue Cinema’s management tweeted that the historic Roncesvalles Avenue movie palace would be closed until further notice because of “building issues.” This is the same venue whose marquee once collapsed under the weight of some winter snow, so a little bit of worry was warranted.

But it appears all is well: the theatre’s managers have posted a statement on its website, saying that the cause of the closure was nothing more than a rogue piece of plaster, which fell from the ceiling of the lobby and injured one person to the extent that they required first aid. Daniel Demois, general manager of the Revue, told us by email that the damage was “minimal.” He expects the theatre to reopen before the end of the week.

    I was there the night it happened and it wasn’t anything too serious.
