June 7 1990 and thse films are playing there: “BACK TO THE FUTURE III” .“BIRD ON A WIRE”.“ANOTHER 48 HOURS”,“TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES” “THE GUARDIAN and "CRAZY PEOPLE” the last two were a double feature, “BIRD ON A WIRE” and “BACK TO THE FUTURE III” were shown on two screens,don’t understand the need to do that for “BIRD ON A WIRE” a very lousy movie. They were selling “DICK TRACY” ticket T-Shirts to see “DICK TRACY” coming soon to the Valler River 6 theatres.

The University Center opened in 1972, anchored by Safeway on the North end and Pay-n-Save on the South end, it was expanded in the 80s, with the University Cinema added to the south end in the mid 80’s.

As far as I know the former theater space is now used by University of Alaska Anchorage for classrooms.

I think early 80s is relatively new given that most of our discussions concern theaters built in the first half of the twentieth century.

The photo that I saw implied that University Center was an alternate name. As always, I do not argue infallibility.
