The Plaza del Sol Mall launched March 10, 1979 in Del Rio, Texas. About a month later, on April 19th, 1979, Plitt opened the multiscreen Cinema III in the mall. Plitt also operated the Cinema Plaza and Gay 90 Drive-In at that time before closing both in 1981.

The struggling Plitt Circuit would be partially absorbed by Cinemark which took on the theatre on May 8, 1987. Cinemark slightly rebranded the the venue as the Cinema 3 which it operated until February of 1996. It would then create the larger Movies 8 facility that opened later in 1996 and continued into the 21st Century.
