The Trans-Lux Twin opened on Friday December 25, 1970. It was Huntsville’s first twin theatre. The auditoriums were referred to as the Gold and Blue theatres. John McNamara & Assoc. was the architecual firm for the theatre. Opening movies were “Love Story” & “The Owl And The Pussycat”.

The theatre later became a three screen and reopened on Friday November 14, 1980 wtih “Galaxy Express”, “The Deadly Angels” & “Gloria”. The theatre went from Trans-Lux to Consolidated Theatres and finally Cobb Theatre as operators. The Cobb Movies 3 closed on February 28, 1993.

The building was gutted and became an Old Country Buffet later Hometown Buffet and then an Italian restaurant called Papa Lovetti’s.
