This is a fairly typical and uninteresting movie complex. However, the big screens had curtains that opened and closed, which was surprising since the era of pre-show advertising was under way and also surprising, I went to see GONE WITH THE WIND there while all the other screens had contemporary films going. It was nice to go to this theater in the 1990s because the mall was very hip and fun. Now the mall is kind of quiet and doesn’t offer as much as it once did.

This theatre was constructed in 1994 and was originally occupied by United Artists. It was constructed as the entire Downtown Plaza was being built. There were three screens on the upper level, with #3 holding 591 seats and featuring THX certification. The lower level had four smaller screens and it’s own concession stand.
In 1995, the theatre experimented with an interactive movie called “Mr. Payback.” Sadly, interactive movies did not catch on.

This was originally a UA build, built during that period in the mid-90’s before stadium seating caught on.
