The Southcenter was the last 70-mm Cinerama-capable theater built in North America. It opened in 1970 by United Theaters and had seats for 1,228 patrons. It boasted one of the largest screens in the area; the deeply curved screen measured 88 feet wide and 32 feet high. It closed Aug. 5, 2001, after a showing of “Moulin Rouge”. The building was demolished in 2002 to make way for a Bahama Breeze restaurant.
It was a great theater because you felt like you could walk right into the screen. It was that classic, giant, one-auditorium-style theater. That’s probably why it didn’t survive in a multiplex era.
