Willow-1947-RedStallion The Willow Movie Theatre was a 1947 movie theatre in Willowdale, Ontario on the east side of Yonge Street and south side of Ellerslie Avenue. At that time Willowdale was a growing suburb just north of Toronto's city limits. This area is now part of the North York region of Toronto.

The Willow was known for its modern architecture which featured a large block-glass entrance. 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, when a Cineplex Odeon multi-screen was opened at Yonge Street and Shepherd Street about 2km (1.25 mi) south. The site is now a condominium.
