In 1975, Budco twinned this theatre.
In January 1992, AMC Theatres (successors to Budco Theatres) closed this theatre, mainly due to the close proximity of the recently opened AMC Marple 10 Theatre, which was a mile west of the Springfield on Sproul Road.

This opened on September 25th, 1964. The grand opening ad is in this theatre’s photo section.
