Previous Names: Westown Ultra-Vision Theatre
This theatre was located in the north-east corner of the parking lot of West Towne Mall, near the corner of Kingston Pike and Morrell Road. It was a circular building in the style of a Cinerama house. The lobby had huge plate glass windows looking out, and a central semi-circular concession stand.
West Towne Mall opened in 1972, and the Westown Ultra-Vision Theatre opened December 20, 1972 as a single screen cinema with Steve McQueen in “The Getaway”. it was operated by ABC Theatres. It was twinned in October 1983.
I recall seeing "The Empire Strikes Back," "Hellraiser," "Heathers" and "Fanny and Alexander" here. When West Towne Mall underwent major renovations in the late-1980’s or early-1990’s, the cinema was closed June 28, 1990 and was demolished in favor of a new in-mall multiplex.
