UA Cinemas 4 opened Christmas Day 1971 at the above address. UA would leave and the venue became the Northgate Cinema. It closed July 9, 1998. It was converted to retail as a Hancock Fabrics store.

After having downtown theaters with 1200 to 2000 seats and more recent neighborhood houses like the 890 seat Tower and 980 seat single screen Manchester, Fresno in 1971 found itself saddled with this little concrete bunker with 4 screens with 190, 280, 340, and 190. What I don’t see listed here is the nearby UA Movies 4 which opened 4 years later in December 1975 with Sam Peckinpah’s Killer Elite. It was easy to confuse the two 4-plexes as one was the UA Cinemas on Blackstone Ave just south of Barstow and the other was the UA Movies on Barstow Ave just east of Blackstone Ave. The more recent Movies 4 had two larger houses that were in the 400-500 seat range.
