Dirty Mirror

Opened on February 10, 1978 as a six-plex in the center of a mall. Six auditoriums in a row with the largest two at each end and the smallest ones on either side of central concession stand. As of summer 2006, this was a discount house showing six month-old movies.

It was closed on March 17, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

I live within walking distance of this theater…amazingly enough, it is still operating (as the North Oaks Dollar Cinema) and does a brisk business.

judging from the photo above it looks like the interior hasn’t changed much since the late 70s

I used to go to this theater when I was a kid. My mom would take my sister and I quite often during the summer when this first became a $1 movie theater. I remember seeing movies such as Richie Rich, The Sandlot and The Mighty Ducks here. The area around it has gone downhill since then. I still live in the Houston area and pass this theater from time to time but I doubt I’d ever go back. I do think about going just for the nostalgia.

Does anyone remember the $1 movie that used to be in the Greenspoint area, on the opposite side of I45 as the mall?

Was it the AMC Greens Crossing 6?

Hey Scott! Yes it was! I used to work in the area and Id pass by that theater every now and then. It would always bring back memories. I believe its some sort of church now.

It looks a little run down in the photo with ragged curtains. Good it is still open though. All movie theatres should always have a long life.

Lots of memories here. The first movie I remember seeing at North Oaks was STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN with my dad in June 1982. I was taken by my mom to see TRAIL OF THE PINK PANTHER in December 1982, BLUE THUNDER (June 1983) and INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM (May 1984) by my aunt, and TRON (July 1982) by my dad. Most of my street came to see BEVERLY HILLS COP in December 1984. They had a handful of arcade games in the lobby, including a trivia video game we were both obsessed with. This theater was and is in a “lost” mall. In the 1980s, it included a B. Dalton Booksellers, Aladdin’s Castle arcade and a Target, but not much else. The last time I saw a movie here was with my high school girlfriend to see SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY in February 1991.
