Opened in July 1965 with “In Harm’s Way”, the Cinema Grossmont was a single screen theater owned by Statewide. Originally located at Highway 80 and Jackson, it would soon serve to anchor the Grossmont Mall.
Equipped for 70mm exhibitions, the first 70mm engagement to play there was “Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines” on August 4, 1965.
This theater was also the only place in the area to see “Raiders of the Lost Ark” in 70mm when it opened in 1981.
The Grossmont Theater was joined by a small three-screen multiplex in the mall in the early-1980’s before it closed in January 1992 with the film “JFK”.
After its closure, it served as a Good Guys electronics store. Currently, it sits empty.
