General Cinema Valley View Ad

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This General Cinema theater in the Valley View mall opened in 1975 and was closed in 1991. Although the box office was on the ground floor, the theaters were one level below in the basement. The space is currently occupied by a radio station.

AMC has recently opened a 15-screen theater in this mall, but in a different location.

Hard for me to Believe some upstart Theatre chain like REGAL would bring down GCC.I have never been impressed with any Regal Theatre.But i am a GCC homeboy.Remember when it was AMC and GCC,the good old days.

I worked as the Assistant Manager of this theater from April of 1990 to it’s closing in January of 1992. From the accident reports retained on file in it’s office. This theater had been open in 1972. And the GM’s sig on the report was none other than my future GM at the UA Prestonwood Creek 5. During it’s last few years as a dollar theater. It made it’s money off of one thing: Weekend Midnite showings of “The Rocky Horror Pictureshow”. We even managed to sell out the 500 seat auditorium a few times. That was alot of toilet paper and toast to clean up.

Just to add that I went by Valley View Mall recently and walked around. This mall is now a huge collection of art galleries. The AMC theater on top is almost dead. I took what will probably be the last pictures of the former GCC Valley View. This mall is reportedly scheduled to come down in the next month or so. The theater’s space is currently being used for storage.

The clock is now ticking down for the old Valley View. Demolition of the mall officially began this past Friday morning with a groundbreaking ceremony for the new development project and the tearing down of the parking garage outside of the theater and Dillards. The old Sangar Harris/Foleys/Macys building was torn down over the past few months.
