The Tyler Mall is now “The Galleria at Tyler”, the UA Cinema is long gone and there’s now an AMC 16 (opened December 2007) there.

Many movie discussions with my husband include him exclaiming “I saw that at the Tyler Mall!”, or “I saw that at the Showcase!” (Corona’s Showcase Theater, a prominent music venue for maaaany years, now dark and empty).

“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” opened here on February 2, 1979 and played there for almost 4 years. It was considered “THE” Rocky Horror theater for the Inland Empire.
Bill Gartley was the manager of this theater during that time.
For more information on the first established Rocky Horror group at this theater, please visit:

If any one has any photos of the theater, please contact me.
I would love to see them.

As a kid, I saw Jaws, The Exorcist, 2001 Space Odyssey and many others. In high school I was an assistant manage for shows like the Rocky Horror Halloween midnight show, Rambo, Porky’s, Sixteen Candles, Empire Strikes Back, and Revenge of the Jedi.

The midnight shows used to be epic. Especially Aud 2 (The Song Remains the Same) which was a big pot bake out every friday and saturday. Good times.

A chronology of the Inland Empire’s 70mm presentation history has recently been published. The UA 4 at Tyler Mall is mentioned numerous times.
