The Roseville 4 opened in 1974 as a first run house. In recent years, it has been screening second-run films at $2 a ticket, with Tuesdays being dollar nights.

The cinema closed at the end of March, 2008. It was torn down to make way for a supermarket.

The Roseville 4 Theater was opened in the mid-seventies by Engler Theaters of Hopkins, MN. The family owned exhibitor begin with the Hopkins Theater in a western suburb of Minneapolis, and later took over and bought several neighborhood theaters in suburban Minneapolis. I think this was their first move into the St. Paul suburban market. The theater was built inside what was previously a large Spartan-Atlantic discount store built across from the St. Paul city limits on Larpenteur Avenue. The discount store was converted into a strip mall. The theater’s decor was almost non-existent. It did have at least one screen that could run 70mm. The most famous thing about this theater was the plush highback reclining seats upholstered in antique white!

A PDF available from the web site of St.Paul architectural firm Vanney Associates lists 25 theater projects designed by Robert F. Vanney, including an undated interior remodeling of a four-screen theater at Roseville, Minnesota. This having been Roseville’s only four-screen house, it must have been this one.
