The conversion of the Commerce Park 8 into the Movie Tavern at Richie Road was designed by the Dallas architectural firm Partners in Architecture.

Remember this as the Commerce Park 8 in the early 1990’s. While is was not stadium seating, it was a step up from the mall theaters for legroom and overall ambiance. One of my favorites back in the day.

When this theatre was the AMC Commerce Park 8 in December 1996, it was robbed and a manager and floor worker were shot. The floor worker later died. AMC closed the facility soon after.

Jasonm74, I vaguely remember the shooting. I was still a kid at the time, but I remember that the area was already going downhill in terms of crime and after that shooting, we never visited that theater again. Oddly enough, I can not seem to find anything online about that shooting other than what you posted.

I remember seeing Free Willy, Home Alone 2 and The Santa Clause at this theater.

jasonm74 on December 10, 2017 at 7:50 pm This location has permanently closed. Considering the area, I doubt this location will ever re-open as a movie theatre. There is a nearby Premiere Cinema at Greenspoint mall that competed for business, plus with the recent renovation at the AMC Spring 10, I can’t imagine anyone would re-enter this market (and I was surprised when Movie Tavern did)

Does anyone have any pictures, inside or outside, of the old AMC Commerce Park 8 that they could post on here?
