Previous Names: Highland Park Cinema
General Cinema built a number of rather bland twin theatres. This was one of them. It was located in a shopping center off of Illinois Route 41, on Deerfield Road in Highland Park. A Toys R Us was situated next to it, so plenty of Disney fare was shown.
It was not one of the most profitable theatres in General Cinema’s chain and was closed in the early 1980s. The former theater was purchased by Conn Music Center. One auditorium was converted into a piano showroom, the other remained and was used to teach music lessons. The lobby retained its original paint/carpeting but the concession stand was removed.
In the late 1990s or early 2000s it was demolished and the property redeveloped into a Jewel-Osco.
