True Ghost Story: Haunted Theater

Location: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

The following report was sent into our website by Sylvie on November 8, 2008:

“The event occurred approximately 9 years ago. There are two other witnesses.

I saw an old caucasian man (who looked to be in his 60’s) with a white shirt and grey hair (somewhat balding). I did the standard eye rub (as I figured I must have been seeing things, since there was only myself and the female manager on duty since the theaters had just closed, and it was shortly after midnight).

I noticed the man while cleaning up the large theater room (room 1). I looked up into the projection room, the light was on, and I saw the man standing against the wall looking at me. I told my manager (which completely freaked her out because she thought maybe someone had broken into the upstairs area).

We both went upstairs to look around, and of course we saw nothing. We returned to the office area. My friend Erin showed up and waited for me by the office door. When we were about to leave the room, the phone started making noises (the sound the little red release button – used in businesses -would make when touched), but neither of us were within any distance to the phone.

When we had mentioned what had happened, we received two comments…

The first comment was apparently years ago when they had a hired projectionist, he had committed suicide in the projection area.

The second comment was that an elderly man had passed away in the large theater room (room 1).

Keep in mind that both comments were just heresay, and I never looked into seeing if either of them really occurred.”
