This opened as Towne & Country with two screens on November 7th, 1969 by Famous Players. Later on the largest screen was split creating 3 screens and renamed Centerpoint after the mall changed its name. Closed in 1999 during the megaplex boom. Grand opening ad posted.

The back of the theatre can still be clearly identified in this Google Street View image, 20 years after it closed. The auditorium that was split is on the left, which became cinemas 2 and 3 (both narrow with single aisles down the centre). Cinema 1 is on the right. Under Famous Players' early 90s approach of using old theatre names instead of numbers, these were called Palace (red), Avalon (yellow) and Rio (green) – from largest to smallest, if my memory’s correct.
