El Paso Premier Montwood

This theatre was built and opened by Cinemas Southwest Theatres in September 5, 1975, located inside Montwood Mall. It was bought out of bankruptcy by the late Bob Garner of Movie One Theatres of El Paso.

I managed this theatre from 1984 to 1993. We added four additional auditoriums and expanded the lobby, concession and restroom facilities on July 17, 1987. The renovation boasted flashing neon behind glass brick walls, sequentail lighting all the way down the “magic tunnel” to the new auditoriums, and lots of brass, including the ceiling panels in the lobby.

I uploaded a picture of the front of the theatre taken in September 1984. I had taked over as manager of the theatre. The CSW logo on the sign was Cinemas Southwest, the company that built the theatre. I had opened two new CSW theatres in Waco in 1974. One of my ushers was quite an artist, and he changed the logo on the sign from CSW to Movie One Theatres, the company that owned it during my years there.
