Located in the Southland Shopping Center. This theater, which opened on January 1, 1968, was the first multi-screen theater built in Hayward. It started as the Cinema 1 & 2, showing first-run fare. Seating was provided for 1,276 in screen 1 and 836 in screen 2. Eventually, more screens were added and the original 2 auditoriums were chopped up.
At the time of its closing in 2000, it had been a 5-screen theater. A 25-screen theater with stadium seating in nearby Union City, declining attendance, and General Cinema’s decision to pull out of the San Francisco Bay Area market, led to its closure. General Cinema had ran the theater during its entire operation. The theater was boarded up and sat vacant since its closure, and was demolished in early-2006.
General Cinema is no longer either following its acquisition by AMC.
