This cinema replaced the other two that were located in the Mall. (San Jacinto Cinema 4 and Cinema 6) The new cinemas feature all stadium seating with high back rocker loveseats. The seats have retractable arm rests. Each auditorium has DTS Digital sound.

The theatre is located in the food court section of the San Jacinto Mall. The lobby and concession area has a plush carpeting and tons of neon around the lobby. There are arched dividers around the concession area with neon accents.

The entrance to the theatre is below a large angled glass window area. There are rods in layers with a canvas like shade that runs along the windows giving a flag effect but allowing light into the foyer. Neon around the theatres and over the box office set the theatre apart. The theatre also has a large closed in game room. It was operated by Premiere Cinemas chain and had digital projection. It was closed in June 2019 to be demolished along with the mall.

This from Variety, November 7, 1956 about a Baytown theatre. Does anyone from Baytown remember what started it?

Massed Assault on Theatre!

“Some 500 teenagers, bent on revenge for a "raw deal”, ran amok here last Wednesday night (310, egg-and-feathering a theatre, barricading a city street and beating a policemen with a club.

The yelling gang – both boys and girls – commandeered a city dump truck, roused the town with a garbage can “tom-tom” dance, let air out of tires and damaged two city patrol cars.

The horde showed up at the Bay Theatre where the manager, H.E. Brunson, had frequently called police for aid against rowdy-ism, and threw dozens of eggs at the theatre front. Then the gang smeared feathers in the “omlet”."

Was this theatre an entirely new build or did it make use of one of the existing cinemas?
