The Barton Creek opened January 16, 1987 and was operated by General Cinema. It was located in the outer parking area of the Barton Creek Square Mall.
The theatre was soon encountering structural problems. It seems the foundation was poured over a land fill into the Barton Creek and there were no piers set for stabilization. Cracks started appearing in the building.
There was a disagreement with GCC about the safety of the building and the lease between GCC and Mall owner. The city stepped in an condemned the building. GCC was able to get out of the lease.
The Barton Creek was just the second theatre in the Austin area that was THX certified. The theatre was closed on March 24, 1993 and was demolished. GCC has since built a large megaplex on another location of the mall lot, now operated by AMC as the Barton Square 14.
