This opened on August 5th, 1977. Grand opening ad in the photo section. It was not opened by Loew’s.

Not much to see now, but the marquee once occupied the empty rectangular grid in this street view from University Drive. A similar marquee was set up on the Royal Palm Blvd. side.

This may have been originally owned/operated by the same company that ran the Lake Shore, Thunderbird, Hi-Way Airport and other drive-ins (the Movie Center III’s ads were on the same block as the others, with an eventual notation MC III was an indoor venue). The then-newly founded Muvico Theaters took it over in the mid 80s, switching to second-run discount admission once GCC opened the Coral Square 8. This space stood to be cleared out for retail.
