Was this theatre similar to the Showplace theatre in Lubbock? Was it part of the Noret chain?

The Showplace in Amarillo was owned by Noret.

Showplace 4 opened in April 1977. It did not use union projectionists so I was not allowed to see movies there since I was associated with IATSE Local 469. They picketed the place for months but this is Texas so all their effort was in vain. My first movie there was August 14, 1977, “Mac ARTHUR”. I went with a union member. SP4 was a first run theater until the ‘90s when they started showing second run movies for a dollar. It was a very simple theater and died quietly in 2002. But I did see the first “STAR TREK” movie there December 7, 1979.
