This Cineplex company that owned this theatre predates Cineplex theatres of Canada by at least 3 years. (construction for the Cineplex in Toronto’s Eaton Center started in 1978)

The theater launched independently in 1973. In August of 1979, Cineplex begins advertising the theater as Cineplex Theatres Cinema I & II. Trans-Texas acquired the theater in March of 1988 closing it down to remodel and hire a new staff. J.C. Mitchell’s group had a grand re-opening on April 8, 1988 with “Beetlejuice” and “Johnny Be Good.”

Just one year later, some Trans-Texas properties become Cinemarks including Paris' Cinema I & II in March of 1989. In 1996, Cinemark announced a new-build multiscreen theater. Cinemark closed the Cinema I & II on May 22, 1997 with “Anaconda” and “Father’s Day.” The chain said the Cinema I & II would remain open despite its newly-built Movies 8’s grand opening the next day elsewhere in the city. No further ads or bookings appear, however.

This theatre was open until around 1997. It was operated by Cinemark when it was shut down (replaced by the newly-constructed Cinemark Movies 8)
