On November 12, 1976 Edmonton’s Citadel Theatre opened at its current location by Churchill Square. The original theatre, at the old Salvation Army Citadel on 103 Street (now the Starlite Room), opened several years earlier.
I remember taking a field trip to the Citadel theatre when I was a kid — very thrilling for us small-town folks. I’ve been lucky over the years to attend lots of openings and sneak a peak at the costume department. Theatre magic!
