Biographical history

The Alberta Theatres Association was formed in 1943 to represent the majority of motion picture theatres in the province. Members included the Alberta Independent Theatre Exhibitors Organization, Edmonton Theatres Association and Calgary Motion Pictures Exhibitors Association as well as individual theatre owners in the province. The first president was Matt Park of Wetaskiwin, and the first secretary was Roy Chown of Calgary. During the 1940s the association lobbied the government about regulations affecting theatre projectionists and the wartime amusement tax. The association was a member of the National Committee of Motion Picture Exhibitors' Association of Canada.
