- Apr 18, 2007 — The very first shopping center theater: Stamford, CT or Seattle, WA ?????
Opened as a single screen on October 4, 1951 with Fred MacMurray in “A Millionaire for Christy” & Ethel Barrymore in “Kind Lady”. This was one of the first ‘modern’ shopping center theaters in the US. It was used for summer stock the first two seasons, then opened year round for movies. The original theater was added onto in 1963 becoming twin cinemas, then in 1974, another addition and a couple of splits, made this a sixplex before it was closed in December 1994. It was demolished in the 1990’s when Shoppers World was torn down.
