The Willow was known for its modern architecture with blobs of indirect lighting on the theatre's side walls.
Locals recall the around-the-block lines for its double-features, as it was one of the last Toronto-area theatres to run a double.
It remained an independent theatre until its closure in 1987. The site is now a condominium.
Left picture below is a painting by Charles Dowson.   Vertical sign changed - Originally, that sign was more fancy in the shape of the lette P, probaably because it was part of the Premier Theatre chain.
