It was still a bowling alley when I left Birmingham in 1963. Twenty years later, in my UAB grad school days from 1983 to 1989, I went there several times; but the only movie I can recall seeing there is “Desert Hearts” (1985) with Helen Shaver. Stan is right about the conversion being a “natural fit”: the auditoriums (ia?) were about two bowling lanes each. Maybe three. We lived on Saulter Road about a mile and a half away.

Someone who posts under the name of “elmorovivo” has done us the service of posting a nice snapshot of the front of this theater when it was still a quad. Just as interesting as the theater are the views of the numerous late 60’s and early 70’s cars parked in front. A different era for sure.

The only thing I remember about this theater is that it’s where I first saw Star Wars. BEFORE it was subtitled “A New Hope.” We lived in an apartment about a mile from the there.

Looking at the Google picture at the top of this page, the two signs on the front of the building are for an ethnic supermarket and the Chop Suey Inn. A website called hsvmovies.com has some basic information on many Birmingham area theatres. Its listing for Green Springs shows that this location opened as a quad on February 25, 1971. The opening features were Joe, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Tora, Tora, Tora, and Paint Your Wagon.

It gives a closing date of between 1990 and 1992.
