Cinemark updated their website during the pandemic to say this theatre was permanently closed. If that’s the case, the last day of films was 3/17/2020.

Sunland Mall opened on August 31, 1988 and General Cinema signed on early in the project and announced that same year. Once completed, General Cinemas held an open house from May 12 to May 16, 1990 prior to the Grand Opening of its Sunland Mall 6 on May 18, 1990. But General Cinema hit the skids in the 1990s when AMC and Cinemark started building megaplexes and General Cinema mainly stuck to its aging multiplexes.

GCC folded and AMC took over their Sunland Park facility and the Cielo Vista 7 and Park Cinema 6 on April 5, 2002. AMC didn’t care much for its El Paso portfolio closing each of the theaters. It closed the Cielo Vista on August 24, 2003. The Park closed October 23, 2003. The Sunland held on the longest closing September 26, 2004. Cinemark revamped the facility in 2013 and operating it six-plus years.

Does anyone have pictures of what the abandoned theater looks like now after Cinemark shut this one down permanently. I just want to see how gutted (mainly the front of the theater) it is and I don’t live in El Paso
