This was the first multi screen theatre in Waco. It opened in early October, 1974 with “That’s Entertainment” in Theatre 1, and “Walking Tall” in Theatre 2. The auditorioms were done in red soundfold, and had red American Seating chairs. A small stage was in front of each screen. There were separate rest room facilities for each theatre, and the snack bar divided the lobby, so changing screens was not very easy. The projection rooms sported Ballantyne projectors and soundheads and Christie console Xenon lamps.

It was also the first theatre in Waco to have a platter film handling system with Christie Autowind IIs. It was located on the corner of Valley Mills and Cobbs.

I was the City Manager for Plitt Theatres in Waco in 1980 to early 1982. The Diamond Point was one of the theatres, along with the new twin inside Richland Mall, the twin “on the hill” overlooking the mall, and the 25th Street theatre.
