Never seen a movie there.I used to go into the video arcade in the mall called “The Gold Mine” which was close to the theater entrance..I even worked at the Round Table Pizza parlor in the mall.

I remember seeing “Clash Of The Titans” there in the early 80’s.

I agree with the above comment. As soon as you walked in was the snack stand. Then three screens on either side. It was a first run theater until the late 80’s. By then the UA up the block, Cineplex Plaza across the freeway, and Century 8 in South City put the nail in it’s first run coffin. I remember seeing “Golden Eye” there in 1994 when it was a discount theater showing movies at the tail end of their box office runs.

This theater was short lived if I remember correctly. It was built in the late 80’s and was closed in 2002.

I seen “Superman” there in 1978 and I still remember my shoes sticking to the floor with what felt like syrup..That was the most untidy theater I ever watched a flick in.

I seen “Back To The Future” here when it first opened..How Ironic that this muliplex caused the demise of the multi screen Tanforan theater and some 20 years later a multi screen theater in Tanforan causes the demise of the Century 10.

This theater was opened well before 1988. I seen Return Of The Jedi there in late 1983/early 1984.
