I recently ran across some online archives of my old college’s student newspaper (The UMSL Current) from 1985 and 1986. There were a few movie ads in there and one had the Woods Mill Cinema listed in it. The location for the Woods Mill was given as “Hwy 40 and Woods Mill Road.” After doing a quick check of Google Maps, that location would be close to Maryville University. I also noticed a small strip center with a Dave’s World in it on South Woods Mill, just off South Outer Forty Road. Perhaps this was where the Woods Mill Cinema was located. Keep in mind the key word here is “perhaps”. :)

Utilitarian-at-best twin that I remember as having unmemorable projection and sound. Plus, I just have to make the snarky remark that it is quite unlikely that anyone is going to “Favorite” this cinema, because, honestly, why would you? :–)

I think this theater was actually about 2 or 3 miles further south at Woods Mill and Clayton. Maybe the address no longer exists.

Cinema Tour lists a Four Seasons Cinema I & II which is not listed here on Cinema Treasures. The address given is 68F Four Seasons Shopping Ctr. which is at the intersection of 141/Woods Mill and Olive. Does anyone remember that one?

The map shows this location to be just south of Parkway Central High School. I went to school there and lived in the area from 1977-2002. I do not recall a movie theater in this location.

In 1984 became a RKO Mid-America operation; in 1985 AMC.
AMC closed in November 1987 with the films “Prince of Darkness” and “The Pick-Up Artist.”

1977 is the correct year of opening.

This theater opened much later than 1962. More like the late 70s. I remember seeing ads for a movie on Channel 11 sometime around there and the announcer saying “Starts Friday at Mid-America’s new Woods Mill”. I believe this and the Cave Spring I & II were the last theaters built by Mid-America.
