The only films I remember seeing here included Don Bluth’s Thumbelina, A Goofy Movie, Gordy (the other talking pig movie from 1995) and Star Trek: Generations. I’m sure there’s more, but that’s all that is coming to mind right now.

It was very similar to the Torrey Pines Cinema down the street in the regards that it contained one large auditorium and two smaller auditoriums.

A shame that it closed down as it used to be right near my house when I lived in Spring Valley.

Saw over 50+ movies here. My parents preferred this theater over to all others. (Who knows why.)

While I can’t recall everything, I do remember seeing Last of the Mohicans, Beauty and the Beast, City Slickers II, Maverick. The reason I can’t recall is I was an American teenager. Think about that. Lots of dates I took to Mountain View, Torrey Pines, Red Rock, Village Square, and Cinedome Decatur.

I have such a “soft spot” for the Mountain View 3. I saw 2 great sports flicks there with my Dad and Granfather. “White Men Can’t jump,” and “Rudy.” But, my most vivid memory there is going to see “An American Tail,” shortly after getting picked up from Kindergarten, complete with a “Fievel” stuffed toy. I seem to have more memories of the neighborhood, in general, which is now an extension of “Chinatown” that extends all the way west down Spring Mountain. Ooh, and Baskin Robbins across the street. Classic!

This address is part of a sprawling shopping center, looks to be about the same vintage. The cinema may have been at this end and then converted later into retail spaces. Hard to tell.

My understanding is that the theater was in the NE corner of that particular strip. Where the map shows “Cue D’s” and the street view shows “KTV Restaurant”
