The Micro Cinema opened in 1975 in a former church in downtown Moscow, giving the city an alternative film house. It was said that the projection booth, which screened 35mm films, was built where the pulpit used to be.

Robert Suto and his partners, Gabe and George Ball took over the theater in 1998 and played a combination of art house fare and Hollywood films. An August 1988 report in the Moscow-Pullman Daily News said that Robert Suto would not be showing “The Last Temptation of Christ” at his Micro Cinema, nor would Essaness Theatres, the other operator in town.

The 150-seat cinema, still operated by Mr. Suto, showed its penultimate movie, “Armageddon", on October 17, 1998. On Sunday, October 18, the theater closed with a free film: “Monty Python and the Search for the Holy Grail".
