Previous Names: Sunset at Kendall Mall
This independent twin jumped the gun on all the major chains in recognizing Kendall as a prime growing South Florida community opening on December 15, 1971. Loews soon noticed the grosses and took over the site in 1974.
Since this section of Kendall is close to the University of Miami, the theatre thrived on student trade and offbeat films when major product was not available. College themed films like “The Paper Chase” and midnight movies ran for months after other locations had pulled them.
The theatre started to struggle when AMC’s Kendall Town and Country 10 took off in 1985. Loews walked away and it ran independent again until Wometco stepped in, even running it as the Sunset at Kendall Mall in 1986, an attempt to keep up the legacy of the Sunset Theatre, their recently closed historic arthouse nearby.
It did not work, and the Kendall Twin closed in 1988.
