This theatre was a General Cinema, opened on November 1, 1963, 2 years ahead of the Randhurst Cinema. It attemped to break from previous stage-centered theatres with a 62-foot screen, curved walls, ceiling, and floor, and push-back seats. It also used something called a "color curtain" (presumably a light wash) in place of drapery. It was split into two screens in October 1973. It closed in late-1983 and was remodeled into a banquet hall, which it remains today.
