The theater was converted into a HOM Furniture Dock 86 store in mid-2021.

The Carmike Oakdale Stadium 20 opened in 2000. In December of 2016, AMC bought Carmike for $1.2 billion which included the Oakdale cinema. AMC had to relinquish locations in 15 markets after the United States v. AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc., findings. New Vision Theatres Circuit took on the Oakdale Stadium 20 along with 16 other AMC properties in April of 2017.

The theatre was closed by the COVID-19 pandemic after the March 16, 2020 showtimes. On June 9, New Visions issued a statement that the circuit would not renew the 20-year lease which had lapsed on April 30, 2020. It was one of many theatres which closed during the COVID-19 and did not reopen. The building was offered for sale by a Dallas-based real estate firm which felt that the property would not be reopened as a theatre again.

It seem that this theater will be closed for good . The owner of property is using former cinema in its advertisements. Nearby cinemas like the Alamo and Marcus has stadium seating

This theatre is not listed on AMC’s website as one of the theaters they are taking over as part of their acquisition of Carmike Cinemas. AMC will likely have to sell this theatre as part of anti-trust regulations they agreed to as a condition of the sale. AMC already has many theatres in the area, most of them as a result of their purchase of General Growth Cinemas.

This opened on May 26th, 2000. Carmike did not buy a grand opening ad for this cinema in the Star-Tribune.
