Roy Evans acquired the Theatre business early in 1949 from Len Stiles who was then showing movies in communities around the lakeshore including Slave Lake, Widewater, Canyon Creek and Kinuso. At the time Len was moving to Chisholm and Roy acquired the rights to show movies in Slave Lake.   Thus began what is now the oldest family owned small business in Slave Lake.  

The movies were shown in the Legion Hall on Main Street for approx 5 years until the theatre was established in its current location.  The original building was about half the size it is now and has undergone several additions and renovations since then.   Back then movies were shown with 16 mm projectors and film reels were delivered in metal canisters by train. To date 5 generations of family have worked in the business alongside Roy and his wife Betty. Roy operated the business until he was forced to retire at age 89 due to ill health.   His children are now carrying on his legacy.
