The $5 million, sub-run discount Starplex Mesquite Cinema 10 opened on July 27, 1996 at Highway 80 and Belt Line Road. On its opening weekend, films were free (Flipper, James and the Giant Peach, The Arrival, Heaven’s Prisoners, Celtic Pride, Dragonheart, Executive Decision, Toy Story, Homeward Bound 2, Truth About Cats & Dogs, and Primal Fear). Auditorium size ranged from 125 to 450 seats. The theater had DTS, Dolby Digital and SDDS at its opening with wall-to-wall screens. '

The theater was the cousin to the Starplex Irving which had also just opened. Tickets were $1 before 6 p.m. and $1.50 after 6 p.m. with bargain Tuesdays. Its nearest subrun discount competition would be from the Cinemark Big Town five miles away and AMC Towne Crossing four miles away. They would both go out of business in 1999 and 1998, respectively. The Starplex chain would later add a first-run theater in Forney just 11 miles away.

Following its purchase in 2015 by AMC, the venue became the AMC Starplex Mesquite 10. After acquiring the Carmike chain late in 2016, the AMC circuit rebranded many of its inherited brands as AMC CLASSIC locations in March of 2017. A refresh brought a sometimes open MacGuffins bar and upgrades including Coca-Cola Freestyle dispensing units. The venue continued as a discount sub-run house. This location was the AMC Classic Mesquite 10 from that point forward.

AMC closed after showtimes on March 16, 2020 here and at all of its locations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In August of 2020, AMC made the closure permanent becoming one of many theatres closed during the pandemic. It officially closed as the AMC Classic Mesquite 10 and its “forever” posters remained in the exterior poster frames for more than two years. However, in 2022, the building was retrofitted as a retail furniture store.
