This theater is entered from the mall food court. Movie Times listings are on a whiteboard instead of the marquee over the ticket window.
I was at this cinema today while my wife shopped at the adjacent outlet mall. It has 7 screens. ( I counted them). Clearly visible from Hwy I-35S is the name on the side “North Branch Cinema 7.” Additionally, the website shows the same start times for 7 different features.
