Very cool to see comments from 2004. I grew up just down 37th from the Apache Mall & Theatre. Now my grandpa lives in the new apartments where the mall once was.

This opened on January 31st, 1969 and split in 1975. 4 screens on December 23rd, 1977 and renamed Apache on June 23rd, 1978. 1969 grand opening ad in the photo section.

Yeah, chalk this one up to “demolished.” Just drove by it. Nothing but an empty parking lot that misses its previous occupant of 30-some years.

Does anyone know if this theatre is still for sale? There might be some interest in reviving it in some way.

I am a former employee of the Apache 6 Theatre. I began working in the theatre business at the Heights Theatre and when Tom bought the Apache 6, he transfered me to begin training as a projectionest and work on restoring the theatre. I was heartbroken when we were told about the theatre being closed. I have put two years of my life into helping make the Apache someplace better that the rest of the huge blan theatres that keep poping up. I know that if someone buys the Apache 6 that they will have many people from the previous staff that would like to return. Also since there is no other multiplex in the Northeast Minneapolis area it would most assuredly draw a croud.

The theater is still vacant as the weeds take over the parking lot. I hope that someone with an eye for design and film can take over the old Chief Theater soon. A theater with a bad roof is like a table without legs.

(Could someone on staff fix my links above? Gracias.)
