Mid-century modern architecture specialist Ann Rysdale, pioneering female architect as Arizona’s only licensed female architect from the 1940s to the 1960s, designed Cineworld. She designed more than 400 projects in greater Tucson area. The 1,000 seat facility cost $350,000 and had four equal 250-seat auditoria. The theatre was automated which was a good thing as the it had four double features at its opening. After Cineworld Corp. of California, the theatre was operated by TM Theatre Circuit which launched the Oracle in 1976.

This was originally operated by The Cineworld Corporation Of California, then TM Theatres, & finally AMC Theatres.

Right now, they’re building a new Chuck E. Cheese’s across the street at 6125 East Speedway Boulevard. I hope they save the old building, restore it, and reopen it as a performing arts venue.
