The Loews Town & Country 3 was walking distance from this theatre, same side of the street.

There was also, allegedly, a Loews Theater in the same area as this theater.

@Darrylb: That “Welcome to Oblivion” movie you speak of is also known as “Ultra Warrior.” Here’s the IMDb page:

For the longest time, this theater building still remained even after it closed.

I worked at the AMC Town and Country 10 in 1995 and this theatre was closed prior to my employment at the 10 plex, so it was closed prior to 1995.

With a bunch of theatres on this site that I had never heard of, I’m surprised no one had put in an entry for this one yet, but I suppose some of these theatres slipped through the cracks. Yes, it existed, as I saw quite a few movies here (like the original Star Wars), played the machines in its game room, etc. It’d be nice if info could be updated with the original street name too, not the Sam Houston Parkway, it’s whatever it was called before the Parkway was built.

Aside from S. Wars though, I actually have a couple of real obscure memories from this place, one being Welcome to Oblivion, which is so damn obscure the two listings at the Internet Movie DataBase for Oblivion isn’t it, which is pretty odd. After reading the plots this movie is neither entry. The film was crap. A friend of mine also worked there in high school when they got in a movie that no one else in the area would book (I assume) called Neon Maniacs. His manager brought in three extra workers for the crowd he anticipated. When less than a dozen people bought tickets for a showing, he said “go on! Go home!” Heh…

I also saw True Believer there, starring Robert Downey Jr. and James Woods. It was in the Guiness Book of World Records for a while due to being one of the biggest flops ever but it turned out to be one of my all-time favorite movies. I saw it with a friend and his brother and the latter bought a Coke and was so mesmerized by the film he forgot about it for an hour. By the time he got back to it it had turned into water. :)
