The $5 million, sub-run discount Starplex Mesquite Cinema 10 opened on July 27, 1996 at Highway 80 and Belt Line Road. On its opening weekend, films were free (Flipper, James and the Giant Peach, The Arrival, Heaven’s Prisoners, Celtic Pride, Dragonheart, Executive Decision, Toy Story, Homeward Bound 2, Truth About Cats & Dogs, and Primal Fear). Auditorium size ranged from 125 to 450 seats. The theater had DTS, Dolby Digital and SDDS at its opening with wall-to-wall screens. '

The theater was the cousin to the Starplex Irving which had also just opened. Tickets were $1 before 6 p.m. and $1.50 after 6 p.m. with bargain Tuesdays. Its nearest subrun discount competition would be from the Cinemark Big Town five miles away and AMC Towne Crossing four miles away. They would both go out of business in 1999 and 1998, respectively. The Starplex chain would later add a first-run theater in Forney just 11 miles away.
