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 Family Theater 1 & 2 located within the Canyon Creek Square Shopping Center. The theater was at 911 Canyon Creek Square next door to the Bonanza Steak House. 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 Rockey’s “It Happened One Weekend” had a two-week engagement at the Canyon Creek beginning October 11, 1974 making $696.25. But soon after as the theater underachieved, it was switched to a dollar house. The theater limped to its end as an English-language cinema failing to find its core audience in November of 1982. The theater became the Victory Theater beginning in 1983 showing Asian films though not making it into the 1990s. The space was converted for other purposes and then was demolished.
