They’re now called Sonora Cinemas — same management, though, I believe. They’re in the process of renovating the lobby and adding several new auditoriums.

I worked as an usher here in 1988 while going to college. There are/were 2 ramps (from the mall & exterior entrance) that lead down into the center snack bar. Which is circular shaped. And the theaters were split into 2 hallways, 3 on each side. I remember 3 Men & A Baby playing for most of that year, I can still recite the dialogue of the last 5 minutes. We also had midnight movies on the weekends, including Rocky Horror & Heavy Metal. At some point, I was allowed to make popcorn, which was made upstairs in a room next to the booth. We popped about a week’s worth of corn and stored it in plastic trash bags, yumm.

I believe this was previously a General Cinema Theatre.

This theatre opened in 1981 as the Westridge Cinemas, first run theatres inside the brand new Westridge Mall on the west side of Phoenix. It had an exterior entrance and an entrance inside the mall. In the 90s, the mall changed its name to Desert Sky Mall and the theatre adopted the same name. In the 2000s the theatre became Cinema Latino. There is no longer mall acess to the theatre and only the exterior entrance.
