The Cotton Bowl Cinema was built in 1971 as a one screen theatre. In 1972 it was twinned, reopening April 20, 1972 as Cinema West 1 & 2. Later renamed Cotton Bowl Twin Cinema, it was closed in 1993 and it was turned into a church by 1994.

Not too many changes were made to house the church; the marquee, box office, “now playing” window lighted signs are all still there. It is now home to Victory Metropolitan Full Gospel Church and has been since 1994.

Cotton Bowl Cinema opened in 1971 as a one screen theater. It was twinned in the late 1970s and was renamed Cotton Bowl Twin Cinema. At some point, ownership changed and the cinema was renamed Cinema West 1 & 2. The cinema closed in 1993 and has been home to Victory Metropolitan Full Gospel Church since 1994. The conversion to a church has been very minimal. The concession stand, box office are still in the lobby. The building features two twin auditoriums both seating 300 a piece and has theater seats and movie screens in tact.
