Cinemark should be added to the “previously operated by” list.

I remember going to this this theater back in the 90’s. They also had a video store in the lobby. I miss this theater because you can see movies only for a dollar.

The Wedgwood was scheduled to open in March, 1967, according to a Boxoffice item published on the 20th of that month. It was the latest house in an expansion of the Interstate chain which had begun in 1965. The Wedgwood was originally a 900-seat single-screener.

The Boxoffice item listed the theaters that had already opened as part of the expansion: “…the Westwood, Richardson; Belaire, Hurst; Clear Lake, near Houston; Parkview, Pasadena; Northgate, El Paso; Westwood, Abilene; Lake Air Drive-In, Waco, and Wonder, San Antonio.” Projects slated to open later were the Ridgewood at Garland and the Northshore in Houston.

This theatre opened in the late ‘60’s during Interstate Theatres last building boom. It played first-run features—saw All The President’s Men in '76. Not long after, in tandem with the Belaire Theatre in Hurst, it was twinned and later fourpled (four-screened).

I remember as a child in the mid-1970s, attending this theatre, which was, at that point, a split two-screen. I believe it was originally a single theatre (based on my memory of an awkwardly sub-divided marquee). Amongst many films, i saw the original “Benji” there, and the fire hydrant out front had a small sign saying it was reserved for the title character. But basically, this was a mid-to-late-century suburban strip-shopping-center movie theatre that got carved up over the years, and the structure can still be seen in Google Earth.
