Discount Cinema started as a first-run theater in 1991 and eventually became a second-run. It had almost art deco appointments on the inside and lots of video games in the halls. Movies were only $1.50 and the screens were very large. One theater had what looked like home made wooden armrests, giving it a lodge like feel.
Towards the end, tickets were sold at the concession booth but it would have been hard to tell it was closing otherwise. The old shopping center itself was it’s demise, the main grocery store had been closed for a while, leaving Discount as the main anchor. After the other big draw, a video arcade next door closed, it spelled the end for Discount.
The theater was torn down in October 2004 and is being replaced by a Walgreens.
