The shopping center that the theatre was in was developed in the mid 80’s. The Home Depot anchored the west side of the center and the East Towne 8 anchored the east end. Litchfield built the theatre which opened June 22, 1990. Shortly after the theatre opened, Regal Cinemas purchased the theatre from Litchfield.

When Regal bought out United Artists which operated the UA-7 located in the mall that was on the other side of the interstate, Regal switch the East Towne Crossing to a dollar theatre. After Regal enlarged the East Towne Mall theatre, they closed East Town Crossing on October 11, 2001. The building stood empty for several years before finally being torn down.
