The Phoenix Village Twin was an AMC theatre that opened in 1971. Is this separate from the Minitek I & II ?

It is likely that this is one of the theatres resulting from a partnership between United Artist Theatre Circuit’s Minitek subsidiary and the Holiday Inn hotel chain. UATC/Minitek and Holiday Inn partnered in late-1969 to construct and operate minicinema theatres (with small capacity, automated projection, and easy formatting into shopping-center locations).

The first of the Holiday Inn Minitek theatres (probably this theatre) was opened in Fort Smith in March of 1970. Despite what it says above, the theatre was a twin theatre, though, with two 350-seat auditoriums.
