The Sunset Hills Cinema was opened December 24, 1964 by General Cinema as a two screen theatre seating 1,500. The larger auditorium had 1,000 seats and the small number two had 500. When the Sunset Hills first opened it was about that time that the suburban theatres started running day and date with the big movie palaces in downtown and on Grand Avenue. The Sunset Hills ran day and date with the Loew’s State Theatre and the Loew’s Mid City Theatre.
In 1964 they converted the two auditoriums into a four screens. This was the main GCC house in the St. Louis market until the Lindbergh 8 opened. When GCC closed its houses in St. Louis the Sunset Hills closed for about two years when the Mosley brothers cleaned it up and reopened it as a discount house. It remained that until it closed in 1997 and was demolished for the expansion for the Sunset Hills Shopping Center.
