This was the first multi screen theatre in Waco. It opened September 27, 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 II’s.
