The Wilshire Village Twin Cinema was a nondescript fully automated theatre that anchored a small strip shopping center on Wilshire Boulevard in Burleson. It was opened by United General Theatres on August 25, 1972 with Gene Hackman in “The French Connection” & Burt Lancaster in “Airport” . In the home video era in the 1980’s, the cinema added VHS rentals becoming the Wilshire Village Cinema and Videos. Competition from an 8-screen Rand Theatre in Burleson launching July 14, 1989 appears to have ended things for the Wilshire Village. The theatre closed on July 5, 1990 with Tom Cruise in “Days of Thunder” & Bill Crosby in “Ghost Dad”. New operators took out the wall separating the venue for live events. That was a failure. It ended as the World of Life Church Center prior to be torn down in the 2010’s in favor of the Burleson Stor-More storage facility.
