Downstairs is being converted, Cinemas 4-7 upstairs remains except for seats and projectors.
Something happened to it in 1963 according to the picture that I uploaded. It came from the USGS Earth Explorer.
This is now an Landmark. It opened as a Mann, which became Colorado Cinema, which was bought out by Kerasotes in 2007, which sold all but three theatres to AMC in 2010. AMC had to sell some theatres in the Kerasotes deal and this one sold to Landmark.

Aladdin Theatre Corp. had an American theatre ? 1925-? 1930
An Lowe’s now stands on the site of the drive-in which is at 1225 Highway 50 West.
An USGS aerial photo is uploaded
The photo that I uploaded is dated 1949. The drive-in looks brand new and maybe not finished when it was taken.
Metro Lux means METROpolitan and trans-LUX, the two chains that partnered to build this cinema.
This expanded to nine cinemas and renamed Durango Stadium 9 in 2009.
This opened on May 30th, 1967
This opened as the Citadel 8 $uper$aver in the early 1990’s.
This opened as Cooper 70 in November 1963 and became Cooper 123 on December 24th, 1970. The grand opening celebration for this cinema was cancelled when President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. Cooper sold it to Commonwealth in 1975. I think it closed in the late 1980’s.
I believe that it stopped showing movies in 1972.
I show that the Chapel Hills Sixplex was opened by Mann in 1982 and an separate 9-screen cinema in the mall opened in 1985 with the older screens renamed Chapel Hills 10-15. Carmike bought out Mann in the region in 1992.
If you look at the mall’s directory, you will find the two separate locations.
No movie posters in front of the theatre by the time the Googlemobile passed it by. Looks closed.
Looks closed online, all the showtimes list no showtimes available.
This was on the Parkway just west of Peterson Lane.
This opened on October 29th, 1969. The grand opening ad is in the photo section.
Chuck 1231 If you got the infomation from my movie-theatre.org website
It means about 1975, about 1980 and about 1985. Trying to find more accurate dates. It looks like it opened as a single cinema in the late 1960’s.
