The lobby had some interesting posters displayed opposite from the concession stand. Wondering if anyone remembers all the 40 x 60 posters displayed. I do recall Apocalypse Now , Return of the Jedi ( Style A) , Raider of the Lost Ark re release, An Officer and a Gentleman, That’s Entertainment III and wondering if anyone remembered if there was anymore.

The second theater to open in West Edmonton Mall was Famous Players West Mall 5 on August 18, 1983, located on the second level of the mall’s Phase II. It is situated just below the Palace Casino and in close proximity to the mall’s amusement park, Fantasyland. The theater set a record at the West Edmonton Mall for having the largest cinema auditorium (Auditorium #1), which can seat 690 people. This is almost three times larger than the other four auditoriums in Famous Players West Mall 5, as well as all the auditoriums in the newer Cineplex-Odeon West Mall 8 and the older Cineplex-Odeon Cinemas 6. However, the other four auditoriums in the theater had a larger seating capacity than any of those at Cineplex-Odeon Cinemas 6.
