The Broadway Theatre is an art cinema style theatre located on Broadway Avenue in the Nutana neighborhood of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. This Art Deco style movie theatre was Broadway's entertainment destination during the post-World War II years. The theatre screened popular movies of the period and hosted some live misical performances on the stage in front of the move screen. After falling into disrepute as an "adult" movie theatre, it was restored as an arthouse cinema and live performance venue during the 1980s. Designated a municipal heritage property on April 14 1997.
