During construction of this shopping center theater in 1973, the Modesto Bee said a United General Theatre was due to open here. United General was not connected to National General Theaters or General Cinemas. It is not known if the two-screen theater ever opened as one of United General Theatre’s franchised operations. In 1975 legal problems brought an end to United General’s plan for creating a chain of fully automated turnkey theaters, which could be run by two people.
The operator of the cinema in 1979, as mentioned in the Modesto Bee, was Valley Cinemas, which had locations in Stockton, Manteca and Lodi. An operator in 1987, according to the Fresno Bee, was STM Cinemas, which became Central Valley Cinemas.
The Modesto Bee says that the Valley Cinemas shut down in the early-1990’s. The church, which is in the building today, still has remnants of a theater such as poster cases. The Valley Cinemas was listed in the International Motion Picture Almanac from 1986 to 1988 under independent theaters.
