As the theatre was reaching the end of its 20 year lease as an outparcel, Commonwealth created a $4.5 million, six-screen interior Bassett seating 1,723 patrons that launched December 13, 1985. The exterior Fox Basset Twin closed December 11, 1985 with “Santa Claus-The Movie” and “King Solomon’s Mines.” Both films were moved to the interior six-screen theater’s projection booth.

Even in its last days this was a beautiful theatre – saw “The Right Stuff” here, first run. Memorable.

The building became a Photon after the theatre closed.

The Fox Bassett Center may have been the first 70mm-equipped theater in El Paso.
