My brother Tim Ralston worked here in the early 80’s. He took a couple of pictures and they might be the only photographic evidence of the original theater near the food court.

Uploaded a photo of the entrance. Remember the day when the name of the theater was displayed not the parent company? And with all the changes happening the updates must cost a pretty penny.

Also it appears this theater is open so status should be changed to open.

Probably time to update the summary above as a new theatre was not built in its place, the same one was renovated.

The original theatre was opened when the mall opened and was run by General Cinemas and later sold to Harkens sometime around the late 1980’s and closed in the early 2000’s due to Harkens North Valley 16 3 miles away. Picture Show took ownership in 2010 and renovated the entire theatre with stadium seating and all digital projectors. Picture show used this theatre for there new premium theater concept showing new movies and luxury seating as they where a small family budget 2nd run theatre chain.

This theater was reopened and renovated by Picture Show Theaters. Other then updated stadium seating and a fresh coat of paint it looks the same. But I am glad to see the theater put to use.

It was there at least as early as 1980; I saw The Empire Strikes Back there when it came out.

We liked going to the movies here then shopping at the Farmer’s Market.

These theatres were inside the mall adjacent to the food court. Typical mall theatres.
