The main photo of this theater should be changed, and really a separate entry created for it. That is the General Cinema twin that was on the east side of the mall (later-run by Wehrenberg and replaced by the food court). Jamestown 14 was built new on the west side of the mall.

As of this past week, there seems to be asbestos abatement going on inside.

Building pictured is JCPenney, from this vantage point, the theater entrance would actually be to the right of the photographer.

I was talking to someone recently who apparently worked security at Deerbrook. Supposedly the screening rooms are now totally flooded with water.

Renovations are complete and the theatre re-opened today. A small ceremony was held last night to light the new marquee for the first time: http://ow.ly/JK3fE

One of the Dunes' last films shown may have been the 1974 sci-fi flick: “Dark Star”. Until this year, a tangled mess of film containing the final few seconds or so (“THE END OF DARK STAR”) could be found scatted about the projection room.

After the Dunes closed, the baseball card shop operating in one of the attached storefronts remained open for another year or so before relocating. This summer the entire building was condemned and boarded up by the city of Zion… I’m afraid its future is looking rather grim.

Yes, still standing but not operating. Last year I did some photography in the mall after making friends with a security guard; so hopefully I’ll get into the Cinema sometime.

In the meantime, here’s a shot of the nearly-unmolested 1960s concession area…
