Capitol Centre

SNC-Lavelin

The Capitol 4 Theatre was a four screen movie theatre built in 1983. Formerly owned by Famous Players prior to their takeover by Cineplex Odeon, it was sold to Empire Theatres in 2005.  Faced with overwhelming competition from the 12-screen Cineplex Galaxy Theatre, opened in 2006 and half a block to the south, the Capitol was again for sale as of January 2008.

Empire Theatres closed the Capitol Theatre for good on April 3, 2008. The property was sold and redeveloped as an office building called the Capitol Centre. Engineering firm SNC-Lavalin leased the entire building in 2011.

O’Brians Automotive Event Centre

O'Brian's Event Centre

Obrian' Event Centre

Wendy and were walking downtown this summer on a Sunday night when a concert got out of the O’Brian’s Automotive Event Centre.  A couple of hundred of intoxicated people wander out, many with open alcohol, vehicular damage, people urinating on 2nd Avenue, a couple of fights and not a single security staff from O’Brian’s nor were there a single member of the Saskatoon Police Service around.

So tell me again how O’Brians event centre keeps their liquor license.  While you are at it, how do numerous fights break out on Saskatoon’s most prestigious street and no police even bother to check it out?
