This nondescript 8-plex theater began as part of one of the nation’s fastest growing chains in the 1980’s, Rand Theatres based in Little Rock. It opened December 16, 1988. The theatre was ensconced from the busy 114 Highway with one’s only hope of visibility being its frontage road attractor. Operator Tony Rand was trying to go from around 60 screens to 300 in Dallas using distinctive practices which ultimately led in the shuttering of the chain in 1990.

The theatre soldiered on becoming a discount house. Under its final operator, Starplex Cinemas, the theatre was the rock-bottom price leader in the marketplace at just 50 cents per showing in 2002 prior to closing. A sign off phone recording outsurvived the theatre by almost a year.
