The Gateway Mall Cinema opened April 29, 1970 with the film, “MAS*H” and was big news because the previous grand opening for a theatre in Richmond was nearly thirty years earlier when the State Theatre launched on May 10, 1941. The architect of the 210-seat theatre was Mel Glatz of Denver. Part of the Danbarry Cinema Circtuit, it was acquired by Kerasotes Circuit in 1996 which decided to shutter the Mall Cinema November 14, 1996.

@dallasmovietheaters – are you sure about the Danbarry/Kerasotes dates? I graduated high school in Richmond in 1986 and I could have sworn it was Kerasotes back then.

Yes, Kerasotes operated the Gateway Mall Cinema throughout most of its history. Kerasotes began operating all Richmond theaters in 1976.

The Gateway operated as a Kerasotes from 1976 until 1995 when the chain lost all the monopoly on Richmond’s movie market. It officially became a DanBarry theater for a short period of time, but briefly flipped back to Kerasotes one week before the Gateway Mall Cinema’s closure.
