The Signal Hills 4 theater was a Red Owl supper market in an earlier life. The roof was raised up and the floor was sloped. It was know as a part of the Engler movie theater chain.

Signal Hills was the Largest shopping center in the South East Minneapolis / Saint Paul metro area. At a later date, the largest theater was divided in two. The 1980 and the early 1990’s was the hay days for the theater. After 1992, Area malls could not compete with the Mall of America.

After the theater closed, a smaller discount grocery store briefly occupied the space. About 70% of Signal Hills shopping center was raised to make way for a K Mart store. The Theater space is empty.

I vividly remember seeing this movie theater while sitting in my parents' car in the 90s. Never went there but apparently it had a 70mm projector one time in during its opening.

According to the 30th anniversary of “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” posted on, this movie theater played a 70mm print in six-track Dolby stereo for its special engagement back in 1984. What other special 70mm engagements did this movie theater also had? Anyway, would have been nice to experience something like this back in the day.
