Previous Names: Malco Razorback Twin Theater, Malco Razorback Quartet
An ugly box of a building, the Malco Theatres, Inc., chain kept it open far beyond any cinema of its low quality should have operated. It opened on April 22, 1977 when Malco closed down the U-Ark Theater on Dickson Street. Such a sad event! [The U-Ark was the best older cinema in northwest Arkansas and remains a prime candidate for restoration.]
Such classics as “Jaws,” “Star Wars” and “Apocalypse Now” opened at the Razorback Twin. It became a four-screen theatre, named Malco Razorback Quartet. It eventually became a 6-screen theatre.
It closed in 2009 when Malco opened the new Razorback multiplex several miles to the north.
Today the building was renovated and reopened as a World Gym franchise operation. That closed in 2019 and later that year it became a church.
