The South County Cinema was originally a one-screener, opening in 1966, but in the late-1970’s was divided into a twin. General Cinemas also had another theater that was 100% identical in design – the Northland Cinema, in North St. Louis County.
As late as 1985 the South County was still drawing big crowds. Around that time, Wehrenberg opened a new multi-screen complex just a few miles down Lemay Ferry Road, which began to sap audiences from South County Cinema.
Finally, in 1987, General Cinemas decided to open an 8 screen theater across the street, the Lindbergh 8. The new cinema did poor business for a few years, before becoming a bargain house with 2 dollar tickets and second run shows. The South County Cinema closed in 1988 and was later demolished to create more parking for an adjacent mall.
