I saw the last film to be projected at the Williams Cinema in April (?) of 1995 – when the Classics series showed “Ben Hur”. Changed my life! Does anybody have any information on whether not the equipment is still there? I know that as of 2007 the screen was still intact.

The Cinema at Williams Center launched on September 27, 1978 with Farrah Fawcett-Majors in “Somebody Killer Her Husband.” The Cinema struggled early but found its way as an indy art house. Kept alive by a $1 a year leasing agreement, the theatre closed on April 8, 1990 with “Henry V.”

The venue resurfaced a year later as the Tower Theater at Williams Center Forum on March 26, 1991 vacillating between films and live music and events. The venue’s name was changed one final time to The Theater at Williams Center in 1993 closing late in 1994.
