The August 9, 1971, issue of Boxoffice reported that the Crossroads Cinema I and II in Waterloo had recently been opened by St. Cloud, Minnesota-based chain Cinema Entertainment Corp.. The original house seated 540 in Cinema I and 460 in Cinema II. Cinema Entertainment then operated 14 theaters in Iowa, Minnesota, and North Dakota.

It has the distinction of being one of the few mall theaters that is not attached to the mall! I remember many a hot summers and cold winters trudging across the parking lot to JC Penny to wait for my mother to pick me up.
