I went to that as a kid. It was actually a 3 screen not a 1 screen. It was replaced by a Waterslide/mini golf area then eventually a Costco joined in.

The Westlane theater was built in the late 50’s. Both theaters were designed by Rodda Harvey Sr.(my grandfather) The Hammer construction foreman was Rotus Harvey (my father). The son of our General Manger and I were on the Hammer lane job site as our first paying job(circa 1967). The Westlane and Hammer had a capacity of approximately 1500 cars. The triangular parcel adjacent to the intersection of Hammer and West Lane was sold to Golfland in the early 70’s. The property also hosted a short lived skateboard park. The theaters and undeveloped property were sold to Costco Inc. in the mid 80’s.
