I remember the Annex 3 and 7 very well. It was located on 41st between Sheridan and Yale in what is now a very busy shopping complex. The old Annex mall has been torn down replaced by TGI Fridays and other modern conveniences.

The original Annex 3 was located in a not-so high traffic mall with a Oshman’s Sporting Goods and a few other odds and ends shops. The theaters themselves were really spacious, each containing upwards of 300 or so seats. A typical old United Artists theater setup.

When the masterful decision was made to add 4 screens to keep up with the Jones', the decline of the theater and the location was evident. The additional 4 screens were built on the complete opposite end of the original theater and mall, making it easy for anyone to just sneak in (and believe me, they did). Plus, the newer theaters were extremely cramped and unattractive. However, the theaters held on for a little while.

The end of the Annex came with the opening of the AMC Southroads 20 located directly across the street from the Annex. AMC also took out the General Cinema Southroads Mall I & II, which was located near the same mall complex.
