This entry should be removed; it was once the O'Brien’s Theatre but it is already listed as the O'Brien Theatre which the current name.

It may be the same peron who does (or did) the marquee changing at he Neptune in Seattle; similar humorous commentary used to (perhaps still does) appear on that marquee.

This theatre was twinned in 1979; closed in 1999. Screens should be 2.

There are several pictures and comments here. It appears that the theater space has now been completely gutted out.

It spent the decade or so of the last part of its life as a $1 theatre.

CSWalczak commented about Movies at Fairlane on Jun 15, 2008 at 8:41 pm

This theatre originally opened as a five-plex in 1976 and was operated by United Artists. Its entry was inside the mall; it was later expanded to a ten-plex
and management was taken over by Jack Loeks Theatres.
Fairlane Mall is a multi-level mall and there was for a time two different entries to the screening rooms depending on what level the particular cinema was located, which was an awkward layout. The cinemas themselves were undistinguished in decor and by the end of the complex’s life had become very shabby.

The theatre complex closed in 2000 or 2001, esssentially replaced by a new 21-screen theatre, originally operated by Loew’s Cineplex (which had a substantial part ownership of Loeks). It’s now operated by AMC. That theatre was built immediately adjacent to the part of the mall where the originally Fairlane theaters were, but I do not know if the new theatre occupies any of that space. The new theatre’s entry is outside the mall.

It could have been created out of storefronts, but it looks purpose-built.
