This theater was inexpensively built in the 1970s and had very little legroom. In the 1990s, it was demolished and converted into a wedding chapel, along with other stores next to it. The location is now the home of the Richardson Theatre Center, used for live performances.

The theater was not at the intersection of Lookout and Custer, but in the Canyon Creek shopping center at 913 Canyon Creek Square

The 862-acre Canyon Creek subdivision was given approval by the Richardson City Council in 1962 to include a golf course, shopping center, apartments and single-family housing. In 1974, it had its first theater named the Canyon Creek Theater located with the Canyon Creek Square Shopping Center. The theater was known for showing first-run family fare and featured midnight cult and cult-to-be films. The theater also had a world premiere at its location. Palmer Rickey’s “It Happened One Weekend” had a two-week engagement at the Canyon Creek. But soon after as the theater underachieved, it was switched to a dollar house. The theater limped to its end never finding its core audience.
