I grew up in this theater. My dad was the manager from 1981 until 1997, with a brief hiatus during UA’s money issues in about 1989 or 90. I remember seeing countless movies here, playing on the arcade games, and running around being a terror.

It’s a shame they sold and demolished this place.

Couple of interesting tidbits, during the “split” of the big house on the right side, my dad was injured by falling from the roof (1993) and the theater never really ran the same after that. After Dad was forced to leave by management (1997), they converted it to a dollar theater and sold out to Hardman a few years later.
