An independent called Lone Star Theater tried to keep this one going, then they moved to the old AMC 8 across the highway and was out of business by 2003. Interestingly enough when Lone Star was here it was the first time I recall any theater giving you a refill on the large drink, something that all the big chains do now.

To note, The General Cinema Town East 5 has since been demolished.. This happened about a year ago, guessing..
