The Valley Cinemas opened as the Westgate Cinema 1&2 on October 14, 1977 with “The Spy Who Loved Me” and “Rocky.” The 680 seats, in the theater operated by Robert Hunnell, were divided between two auditoriums.

According to the Lodi News-Sentinel, in October 1979 an area chain named Valley Cinemas, helmed by Ed Fonseca, purchased the theater. Soon after the name of the theater was changed to Valley Cinemas. By February of 1992, while operated by Silver Screen Amusements, the number of screens had increased to four with seating listed at 1,100.

The Valley Cinemas was being operated by North American Cinemas when they closed it in July of 2001 due to the opening of their new Downtown Stadium 12. The building was later razed.
