This was the first theater for General Cinema in the Wichita area, opening on October 22, 1976 in the Towne East Mall. On January 21, 1994, General Cinema sold all of their area cinemas to Crown Cinema Corporation. In 1997, the cinema was taken over again, now by the Wallace Theatres Corporation who closed it three years later in August 2000. (Another 4-screen cinema opened outside the Towne East Mall in 1981, which is listed elsewhere in CT.)

This was the cinema located inside the Towne East Square Mall. Royale Theatres took on the venue from Wallace Theatres in February of 2000. They soon found what Wallace and Crown already knew: the day of the twin screener mall cinema was all but over. It had marketed the two theatres as the Towne East Square Cinema VI, a super discount operation with $1 films and concessions. Just six months later, Royale closed the Towne East Square Cinema “Inside the Mall” on August 20, 2000 with “Where the Heart Is” and “Frequency.” The Circuit changed the name of the “Outside the Mall” theatre to the Towne East Square Cinema 4 which continued for about another year.
