Located in a two-level shopping center at the corner of Bellaire Boulevard and Stella Link, this was a wonderful neighborhood theatre that used to feature Saturday morning kid programs with local personality Don Mahoney. The interior boasted murals by local artist Nione Carlson, who also designed the marquee. The first floor seated 800, while the balcony sat 400.
Originally a first run house when it opened on April 16, 1949 with Fred Astaire in “Easter Parade”. It unfortunately began to lose business to multiplexes, became a second run house house, being sub-divided into 5 screens from November 26, 1986 and finally closed on August 2, 1992 after a long battle to preserve it.
From the mid-1990’s, it has housed a Discovery Zone and retail.
