The Hillcrest Shopping Center opened theater-less in 1963 with anchors Woolworth’s and Grand Central department store. In 1969, expansion brought about the Plaza Twin cinema. The theatre played “Star Wars” to enthusiastic crowds. Two decades after closing, the Plaza Twin was still fully intact although locked up.

The “retail space” in question was a HonK’s $1.00 (capitalization accurate) store which occupied the former lobby. As of a couple years ago, the seating still existed behind the retail store area. This was confirmed by a HonK’s employee when I asked where the old theater was located within the complex.
