This theater opened in downtown Dallas on June 6, 1969 as the first theater built since the 1930’s. The opening attraction was the re-make of "The Great Train Robbery".
Seating was provided for 980 in orchestra & balcony levels. "Myra Breckenridge" and "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" were the kind of fare that played here. It was the same style of theater as the Astor Plaza in New York City. I saw "Papillon" here as a young boy.
It was triplexed in 1975, and "Emmaunelle" had a long engagement. Then lots and lots of blaxploitation and kung-fu films. I would estimate it was closed around 1982 as the Cine Central. It now forms part of a hotel.
