Temple, Texas is a quite town, but when the churches and local politicans get involved with what is on the screen watch out! The past history of this little six plex is interesting because it came across a little problem back in December 1983.

B.A. Bengtsson a veteran of the theatre business told locals that have constantly been critical of what he is playing. They want more G-rated movies. Bengtsson said the locals want a "Golden Seal" that requires G and PG movies only! Berngtsson said"In this Business petitions don’t talk, theatre tickets do."

The Cinema Six Cinemas continued its regular fare of films, understanding that folks have reason to complain about Hollywood trash, but send a single by supporting a G or PG picture, which in time the whole organization of "The Golden Seal" fell apart and most likely one or two of the organizers was most likely watching "Gorky Park" which was R rated and played the Cinema Six!

Is the Cinema Six Cinemas the same as Cinema 6/Plitt 6? It was located at 3395 South 31st Street. Owned by Texas Cinema Corporation 1980, Cineplex Odeon, Cinemark Theaters 11/23/99-1/27/02, closed 1/27/02?

Hope someone can answer this!

Toward the end of its life this theater was nasty. Sticky floors, sagging wall curtains, etc.

The also used to be a Cinema 5 a little farther south on S. 31st Street. It was a couple of years newer than Cinema 6 and closed at about the same time.
