Malco Razorback 6 Front - Closing Day

Viewing: Photo | Street View

An ugly box of a building, the Malco Theatres, Inc., chain kept it open far beyond any cinema of its low quality should have operated. It opened in the mid-1970’s when Malco closed down the U-Ark Theater on Dickson Street. Such a sad event! [The U-Ark was the best older cinema in northwest Arkansas and remains a prime candidate for restoration.]

Such classics as “Jaws,” “Star Wars” and “Apocalypse Now” opened at the Razorback Twin. It eventually became a 6-screen theatre.

It closed in 2009 when Malco opened the new Razorback multiplex several miles to the north.

Today the building has been renovated and reopened as a World Gym franchise operation.

I’m going to have to kindly disagree with you on the matter of the Razorback’s beauty and it’s quality, David. Though I’ll certainly not deny that the building was a big old box shape.

The theater ended it’s days as the Malco Razorback 6, a six screened theater by the way.
