I was chief of staff at this theatre when general cinema owned it. And I loved working there cause everything was computer controlled except the projectors. Parking light lights and ac units were controlled by a computer. Hates though the way we had to Pop popcorn. Every Friday I had to assign a staff member to Pop a week’s worth of popcorn and bag it for the whole week.

There are current plans to demolish this theatre and replace it with high rise development.

The Regal Arbor @ Great Hills theatre was one of 20 theaters approved for lease relief in a bankruptcy maneuver with Regal’s parent in bankruptcy protection. Most closed September 14, 2022 while others - like the Austin Regal Arbor @ Great Hills location - continued into the month hoping for a few more patrons. They were few and far between with the venue closing permanently on a Friday - September 23, 2022.
