This theatre closed at the end of Summer 1985—-this was never a twin theatre—-unless someone later reopened it as a twin—-which I don’t think happened.

Oh, and in later life certainly the place had two screens, not one as in the description.

I went to see late night shows of Rocky Horror and A Clockwork Orange there. Loved that little place. Wish it could have been made a “Classics” re-run house.

I saw “Brainstorm” in 70MM at the Heights. They had a huge screen and I remember the sound being very loud, especially during the scenes of the “brain recordings.”

Boxoffice of October 6, 1945, said that that Robb & Rowley’s Heights Theatre was under construction in Little Rock. It was one of four R&R projects then underway, and several more were in the planning stage.

The lobby of this theatre became a bank and the auditorium was sub-divided into various retail shops; they kept the Heights vertical sign and it became the Heights Shopping Center. In it’s later years, it became a 70MM house; saw Ghostbusters and missed seeing Silverado before it closed in ‘85.
