The Greenway was originally operated as an AMC first run, then became an AMC discount house (it was $1.50 when other discount houses at the time were $1.00). When AMC vacated, Landmark theatres came in and took over. It was a 3 screen theatre, no screens were added. AMC actually had Radio Shack amps and Realistic speakers for surround in one auditorium here (no joke). Only one house had stereo, a Dolby CP50 that ran in bypass most of the time. The other two houses were mono. The projectors were cinemeccanica vic 5, and christie autowind platters.

The Greenway was a Landmark Theatre & has, sadly, been closed for several years now.

I worked here in the early 1980’s after dropping out of Rice University. I had a great time. I later graduate from Rice (1984).

This multiplex was originally named the Greenway 3 Theatres, so two screens were added later. It opened at noon on February 1, 1974. The premier features were Goldie Hawn’s “Butterflies Are Free” (screen 1), Ernest Borgnine’s “The Neptune Factor” (screen 2), and Woody Allen’s “Play It Again, Sam” (screen 3). The correct zip for this address is 77046.
