This would have been taken in the 1980s sometime prior to 1987 when this building was demolished.
This was the old Woolworth store on the (northwest?) corner of St. Catherine and McGill College (before McGill College was widened and before Place Montreal Trust was built).

threads like this are the only reason I have not given up on SSP for good.
Thanks for the memories. Dammit I am getting old...I remember a lot of these places that are long gone.

Spectrum - I believe this would be from the first FrancoFolies festival in 1989:

This one, also presumably from 1989 is at the Cinema Parisien on St Catherine (now an empty storefront for several years despite a renovation):
