News About This Theater
- Jun 18, 2010 — "Jaws"... Happy 35th!
The West Plaza Cinema I & II opened June 12, 1970 at the West Aurora Plaza shopping center on Galena Boulevard near Orchard Road. It was Aurora’s first twin movie house. Opening day films were "The Cheyenne Social Club" and "Marooned". Ads in the Beacon-News announced "acres of free parking" and "a great step forward in the progress of Aurora".
The theater interior was designed by Hans Teichert Studios, with auditorium I given a "modern" design and auditorium II given a "modernized classical" design. Later, the theater was expanded to three screens, and continued to operate into the 1990’s.
The theater was demolished in 1994 to make way for new stores. The theater had last been operated by the Cineplex Odeon chain. Any additional information on this theater would be appreciated.
