Cherry Creek 1 & 2

Located beside the Cherry Creek Shopping Center. The Cherry Creek Cinema was opened in 1967 by General Cinema Theatres. It was a free standing building in a sand color. There was a large marquee over the box office and another marquee on the road. The theatre faced west to the open shopping center. There were no steps for patron, not even a curb. There was a large box office and very large lobby. Seating in the single auditorium was provided for 1,800.

The Cherry Creek Cinema played first run movies, sometimes concurrent with its sister theatre the Villa Italia. There were many sneak previews or pre-Hollywood showings such as “All the Presidents Men” when Robert Redford spoke before its first showing, and Jack Nicholson appeared in person for “Chinatown”. The Division Manager office was Dennis Mahaney.

The Cherry Creek Cinema was spit into a twin and it was taken over by Mann Theatres who operated it until the Cherry Creek 8 opened in the shopping center.
