On July 3, 1987, Malco Theatres opened the Winchester Court Cinema (three of its eight screens) as the company’s and the area’s first multiplex. This opening came only three and a half months after construction began. The estimated price tag for the complex was around half a million dollars. The first film shown was “Innerspace”.

One of the Winchester Court’s two 350 seat auditoriums was THX-certified. All of the auditoriums featured JBL speakers and Dolby processors. The theatre also had 70mm film projection capability in its two 350 seat auditoriums. Four of the auditoriums could seat 210 with the remaining two auditoriums seating 160.

The theatre closed in 2008. Information from Malco Theatres via Wikipedia. Used with permission.

when I was young this was the movie theater I went to most of the time to see movies. I thought it was a really nice theater. I saw a lot of really good movies there between 1988-1999.Great memories!
