The Willow Lawn Theater opened in 1956, and was located in the Willow Lawn Shopping Center. It was designed by the architectural firm Budina & Freeman (today Freeman Morgan Associates).
The theater was Richmond’s first to be equipped for 70mm presentation and was the area’s main roadshow house during the 1950’s & 1960’s. Movies to play here included “Cleopatra”, “Dr. Dolittle” and “Mary Poppins”. The most successful booking in the venue’s history was an 86-week engagement of "The Sound Of Music".
The Willow Lawn Theater was closed in 1981, and was demolished.
The new 4-screen Regal Willow Lawn Cinemas was built on the site, opening in 1990, but this closed in 2001.
