This twin had a brief life. It had already been closed when the October 20, 1985 issue of the Albuquerque Journal reported that it was to be removed to make way for a new 53,000 square foot shopping center to be built on its site at 4200 Wyoming Blvd. NE.

Rather than being slated for demolition, the article said, the theater building was to be moved to a site at Yale Blvd. SE and Southern Ave. SE. How the developer proposed to move a large precast concrete building more than seven miles I don’t know, unless perhaps it was dismantled and reassembled. I’ve checked Google street view of the area around Yale and Southern, and there are a couple of buildings that might have been built using the theater’s parts, but there’s no way to tell if one of them actually was.

The ad appearing for the Los Altos Twin on 10/10/1985 in the Albuquerque Tribune indicated the theater was closed. The previous day showed listings for “Prizzi’s Honor” and “The Emerald Forest” - both starting at 9:30pm.
