The Gold Park Cinema 1&2 was opened on August 19, 1977 by Stewart & Everett Theatres (who also owned the Parkwood Cinema at Parkwood Mall). The twin theater was part of Gold Park Shopping Center (now Toisnot Village), located on the Raleigh Road side of the shopping center near J.C. Harris Cadillac. Each auditorium seated 200.

Carmike Cinemas took over the theater in 1986, renaming it the Gold Park Twin. The Gold Park Twin closed in 1995 due to competition from the newer Litchfield (later Regal) Cinema 6. The Gold Park Twin has since been converted into the Higher Calling Baptist Church.

THE GOLD PARK CINEMA 1 & 2 opened on August 19,1977 as Wilson’s first-ever modern twin theaters under Charlotte-based Stewart and Everett Theatres.

The seating capacity for this theater was at 400,which Auditoriums One and Two seated 200 each. The opening attractions for the grand opening of the GOLD PARK were on Screen 1: Richard Harris in “ORCA”. Playing on Screen 2 was “THE BAD NEWS BEARS IN BREAKING TRAINING” with Tatum O'Neal and Tony Curtis.

Carmike Cinemas took over this theatre in 1986 after their buyout of Stewart and Everett and renamed it the GOLD PARK TWIN. Due to the competition of the newer and bigger Litchfield Cinema 6,Carmike Cinemas reduced the GOLD PARK TWIN to a second-run discount house by the late-1980’s. It closed in 1995.
