This theater was opened by National General on October 6, 1967 as a “deluxe motion picture showcase” and was located in the Fremont Hub Shopping Center. The lobby had windows from floor to ceiling and had a rounded design to it, which was most unique. The theater primarily showed first-run fare with a heavy emphasis on Walt Disney films until the late-1970’s.
When a multiplex opened in Fremont in the late-1970’s, the Fox Fremont Theater became more of a second-run house until its closing in the mid-1980’s. The theater was then demolished and an 8-screen General Cinema theater opened on its site in 1986.
General Cinema abandoned that theater in 1999 when a 25-screen stadium theater in the nearby town of Union City caused a drastic drop in attendance.
The Naz 8 Cinemas, which shows films from India and neighboring countries, operated there from 1999 until 2003, when the Naz Cinemas moved to a new, smaller building a few blocks away. The former eight-screen theater was converted into additional retail space by the Hub Shopping Center.
