Hulen Mall opened theatreless in 1977. The UA Hulen Cinema 6 opened as an outparcel building just to southwest of Hulen Mall in 1979. In 1985, AMC announced its intention to move into the outparcel building called Loehmann’s Plaza anchored by Loehmann’s and joined by the Drug Emporium, Tippin’s Pies, and what on the drawing board as the AMC Loehmann’s 10. But while still in development, the project was soon renamed the AMC Hulen 10 Theatres located just about a mile to the south of the UA Hulen 6.

The AMC Hulen 10 launched December 13, 1985. To keep up with AMC — if not confuse potential moviegoers — UA would transform its Hulen operation to ten screens and the two co-existed as Hulen 10s. Box office personnel would constantly have to help customers with a courteous, “You want the other Hulen 10 theater a mile away.”

AMC left the theatre behind on September 10, 2006. Four months later, Regal - which had taken over UA theaters - would vacate the nearby Hulen on January 7, 2007. But both theaters found new owners almost immediately. Starplex Cinemas took on the AMC venue relaunching on December 8, 2006 renaming it as Hulen Movies 10. On January 15, 2010, the theatre was slightly rebranded as Hulen Stadium 10 with all theaters having stadium seating. As for the former UA Hulen 10, it became the Hulen Movie Tavern on September 7, 2007 after receiving a $2.5 million makeover with stadium-style seating with high-back leather rocker chairs.

As of the 2020s, both theatres were still competing in the same zone. The Starplex theatre closed very briefly in December of 2015 at the end of its 30-year lease. AMC came back renaming it the AMC Hulen 10 on December 15, 2015. In August of 2017, the theatre received a major makeover with loungers and new kiosks as part of its new look. The Movie Tavern Circuit was taken on by Marcus which changed the name of the competing venue to the Movie Tavern by Marcus Hulen in 2019.

Anyone have any pics of what the old AMC Hulen looked like?

I miss that AMC Hulen! Nothing has really changed in the new one since AMC Hulen left. It’s a stadium theater now and people still go.

This was originally an AMC theatre opened in the ‘80’s. When AMC got out of the multiplex business into the megaplex business, they shut it down—Starplex took over and then remodeled it into an all-stadium seating theatre. UA opened their own Hulen theatre about the same time but inside the mall—this is the Hulen Movie Tavern now.

The old UA Hulen 10 (now the Hulen Movie Tavern) is located at 4920 S. Hulen St. This is a Starplex cinema.
