Opened by Stateside Theatres as a 1,232-seat single screen on November 29, 1967. The Inland Cinema was designed by the San Diego architectural firm Tucker, Sadler & Bennett, and was similar to their Century 21 Theatre, Annaheim, the Valley Plaza Theatre, Bakersfield and the Century 21, San Diego. It was taken over by Loews later in 1967. It was twinned on November 29, 1974 and taken over by General Cinema. It was closed on September 10, 1992.

Statewide opened this theater in 1967. During the 1970s it was twinned, and during most of its life was operated by General Cinema.

“Inland Cinema I & II” or “Inland Twin” should be the primary name. “Inland Cinema” should be an alternate name.

This theater should not be confused with the “Inland Center 5,” also located in San Bernardino.

My first ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW experience was here Halloween 1987. I became of the performing cast a week later. Several months later,without warning,we were homeless until we started performing @ GCC Montcair Plaza 8.

Last movies i remember seeing there was a double feature of “SEE NO EVIL,HEAR NO EVIL” & “SCENES FROM THE CLASS STRUGGLE IN BEVERLY HILLS” That was in 1989.

I moved to San Bernardino in 1997 and the Sound and Cinema store was already operating under the name Video Mart 2000. The store is now a high end audio/video store. In what was originally the theatre lobby, there are interior and exterior pictures of the original theater.

Had 1,232 seats at its opening, it appears to have closed September 10, 1992 with “Boomerang” and “Whispers in the Dark” at the end of a 25-year lease. The venue was converted to a retail stereo store on August 29, 1997 called Video Mart.
