The East Towne Crossing was opened by Regal Theatres in around 1995, located in the East Towne Crossing strip mall. It closed around 2001. The site where the cinema once existed is now a Home Depot.

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. Regal built the theatre originally to compete with the UA-7 located in that mall that was on the other side of the interstate.

When Regal bought out United Artists, they had a total of 15 screens at two theatres close to each other. At that point regal turned the East Towne Crossing into a dollar theatre. After Regal enlarged the East Towne Mall theatre, they closed East Town Crossing. The building stood empty for several years before finally being torn down.
