I remember a Sat a buddy and I started watching Star Wars around 2pm and watched one showing after the other. They never made us leave. That would have been around 1979 just before Empire was released. Only saw one film as I recall upstairs and that was a re release of American Graffiti around same time. I recall theatre having a bit of a birdhouse feel to it by the mid 80s.

Thanks for fixing the location. It was right next to the Baskin Robbins shop.

Info for the address here is incorrect. The theater was past Willow Lawn, across the street from what is now a shopping center featuring a Target and a Barnes and Noble…NOT in the Fan. It was not the prettiest of theaters… very much in the slick modern 70’s style with lots of plastic and shiny surfaces. The downstairs theater did have an impressively large and slightly curved screen. Upstairs was tiny but did offer the Richmond premieres of many art films including DAY FOR NIGHT, LAW OF DESIRE, HESTER STREET, and even a showing of BIRTH OF A NATION.
