The Arbor Cinemas originally opened as a four screen theatre in 1984 by Presidio Theatres. In 1989 three more screens were added. There was no expense held back on the construction and design of this theatre.
The poster cases on the exterior of the building were unique in that they were outlined with a white colored brick and came to a point like a steeple over each with a large “P” engraved in the brick above each case.
The main entrance had three sections that also had the steeple effect at the top of each. At the top of each was a section of stained glass. There was canvas balloon styled awnings over each of the the three entrances. Above the box office there was a round section of stained glass with the “P” in them for Presidio.
The theatre had a large lobby with the restrooms on a second level with a balcony overlooking the lobby. The lobby ceiling ws done in a sky effect with clouds and twinkling stars.
The concession stand had five stations and had a red and white awning over it.
Two of the auditoriums were equipped for 70mm and THX certified. Seating was slightly elevated and featured high back seats with retractable arm rests. All in all this was a first class theatre unlike many of the other multiplexes.
