Lobby of the Memorial Theater

Located in the Memorial City Mall. This was a 70mm-capable theatre which often screened exclusive first-run movies. It opened in 1966 as a Stanley-Warner theatre. It became a Texas Southeast theatre in 1969, was sold to Tercar Theaters in 1976, and finally to Cineplex Theaters (now called Cinemark) in 1982.

In its later years under Tercar, the auditorium was plit into two theaters, and the balcony was closed. The Memorial Theater was closed in 1984 and was converted into retail space.

Quite a place, but was out of sync with the times on the day it opened. Mall theatres were not the places to support exclusive runs. Very strange “hidden” rooms throughout. But, it was fun training as a manager there in 1981.

Owned by Cineplex of Texas, not of Canada.
