The theatre opened in 1981 by Plitt Theatres. It was a four screen theatre that was in the back of the mall on the ring road. In 1985 Gulf States Theatres purchased several theatres from then owner Cineplex-Odean including this one. In November of 1986 GST was sold to United Artists. UA then added another five screen in the mall and had two operations. UA allowed both theatres to get very run down and this 4 plex had so many roof leaks that it was unsafe. Regal Theatres which merged with UA in 1999 and then allowed the leases of both theatres to lapse in 2004 and this one has sat empty since. It needs to be buldozed if it hasn’t already.

The 5-9 would be the theatre inside the mall, which to my understanding is still operating. The 1-4 would be the building referred to above.
