Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened as the Highland Park Twin Cinema on September 15, 1972. It was located in the Highland Park Shopping Center. With two screens playing first run features with two shows nightly and matinees on Saturday and Sunday. It became a triplex on June 5, 1981.

A squared building with curved archways supported by round pilasters all along the front. There is a center box office with the entrance doors to each side of the box office. There is a small flat attraction board on the middle front of the building. The exterior is done in a brown color with beige accents.

The theatre has a rather small lobby but well appointed. The auditoriums are small but designed for comfort and ease in viewing the movies.

It was later renamed Joy Theater and was closed around 2005
