News About This Theater
The Movies was located at E. 15th Street on Rangeline Road. Opened as a twin on March 15, 1971. A third screen was opened on June 28, 1974. Originally part of the Hollywood Theatres and later operated by Wallace Theatres. It was one of the first multiplexes and largest for some time, located in Joplin. On December 19, 1981 it was expanded to five screens.
The free standing building was constructed of cinder block and painted a light brown. The main entrance was located in the middle and featured a nice sized lobby but the auditoriums were small and cramped. The Eastgate 5 Theatres closed when the Hollywood Northstar 14 opened. It was demolished in Summer of 2005.
