The Albuquerque Journal reported in 1974 that Fred and Marge Kuhne would be opening Rio Rancho’s first movie theater on December 6. First known as the New Holiday Cinema, its first movie was “What’s Up Doc”, with Barbara Streisand and Ryan O’Neal.
On March 3, 1977, it was reopened as the Rio Rancho Cinema by Commonwealth Theatres and by 1982 it had become a twin cinema. What followed was a spotty record of numerous ownerships and closings for long periods. On May 1, 1985, the Rio Rancho Observer reported that the cinema had reopened under new management for the 6th time in 11 years. The theater finally closed for good on August 16, 1998 with Niocolas Cage in “Snake Eyes” & Lindsay Lohan in “The Parent Trap”.
The building located behind the Samon’s building was demolished in 2014.
