Bluebonnet Cinema

This 8-screen Cinemark theater was open from 1989 through 2000. It was then sold to a church that used it for youth activities. It had a “For Sale” sign posted in front of it for several years.

It was reopened December 2015 as Cinema Oasis in four of the screens, showing Asian movies. The other four screens are used by a language school, arts space and café. In fall of 2017 it was renamed Bluebonnet Cinema. It was closed on January 5, 2019.

I drove by this theater today and it is now occupied by, a video and music technology school.

Cinemark built this one in the late 1980s as a dollar-run theater. It never showed first-run films. General Cinema had two properties within a half-mile (the Furneaux Creek and Carrollton 6 theaters) and this was Cinemark’s attempt to have some kind of presence in Carrollton.

The planned Loop 9 freeway was scheduled to run right past this theater, but construction was repeatedly delayed (it finally opened as the George Bush Turnpike in 2001) and moviegoers began deserting the Carrollton multiplexes for the larger megaplexes in Lewisville and Plano. It became “Neotropolis,” a youth center run by Carrollton’s Covenant Church, in 2000.

I saw many dollar films here as a kid and the layout was pretty straightforward – three auditoriums on each side, two in the rear, and a concession stand in the middle. The lobby was done up in garish late 1980s neon colors (which seemed so fresh and modern back then!)

In 1999, just after graduating from high school, I saw “Analyze This” at this theater. There were only a handful of other customers in the auditorium and it was obvious the property was on its last legs.
