The Jewel Theatre was built in 1953 and has been a cornerstone of the Central Alberta community. Owned by Landmark Cinemas for many years, the theatre was in danger of closing in 2014 when it was purchased by the Geddes family. In December 2020, our company, Rairdan Services, Inc., purchased the theatre and immediately began renovations. A full upgrade to the theatre's electrical panels, replacement of all the sewer lines, and an upgrade of the plumbing were done followed by the addition of a handicap-accessible washroom, a kitchen, new flooring, new paint throughout, new sound panels in the theatre, the addition of a fire alarm system, and a new manager's office were just some of the big changes made. Extra theatre seating was removed to allow for custom-built tables so guests could enjoy a full bar, food, and the theatre's famous popcorn. Renovations took over six months.
Summer of 2022 we tackled a full reno of the overhangs on both the front and side of the building, replaced the flat roof, did an enormous amount of maintenance and full paint job of the exterior walls, doors, and marquee. We also launched Reel Good Coffee after converting the box office this summer with a full coffee, smoothie, breakfast and lunch menu and created seating in the theatre lobby during day time hours. The atmosphere, food and drink are just what Stettler needed, and it compliments the theatre perfectly!
Stop by for a coffee, lunch and dinner, catch a movie and try the best popcorn in Alberta!
