This was a smallish theatre with a wrap-around screen. It was behind Wendy’s (which was then Ossie’s Barbecue), and next to Eslava Creek. It was built more-or-less at the same time Bel Aire Mall was (1967). While I know I saw some movies there when I was in high school (1968-1972), I couldn’t tell you which ones. It was still open in 1989, but don’t remember when it closed, nor when it was demolished (kind of I drove by and it was just gone).

The image Google shows is a little too far south; the theater was literally right behind what is now Wendy’s. The drive-way and parking lot are still there; you could cut through to the Mall through it. After the building was demolished, you could see a pile of dirt where the lobby had been.

It was in operation as late as the summer of 1989, as I can recall seeing ‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade’ listed on the marquee.
