This theater opened December 22, 1972 with a re-release of “Oliver!”, “The New Centurions”, “The Last House on the Left” and a double-bill of “Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex But Were Afraid to Ask” and “Where Does It Hurt?”. I know nothing of this theater but would love to know more!

It was on the corner of Highway 13 and Cliff Road E. in Burnsville, MN, and is now a fabric store and an auto parts store. Oddly enough, the outside looks the exact same as it did when the theater opened.

An item in Boxoffice of October 10, 1977, indicates that the Trail 4 Theatre didn’t last very long. An item about recent activity in the Twin Cities market said that owner/operator Harry Lind had closed the Trail 4 permanently after performances on September 25, and that the house was being dismantled and its equipment sold.

The same item said that United Artists would soon open a four-screen theater at Burnsville. It was speculated that Lind had closed the Trail 4 in anticipation of the difficulty his operation would face competing with the United Artists circuit’s greater negotiating power in dealing with movie distributors.

A couple of 1972 Boxoffice items had given the seating capacity of the Trail 4 Theatre as 1,100. The 1977 item said it was about 1,200.
