Dollar Cinemas

Cinemark opened this theatre on December 11, 1987 as a sub-run discount venue. It is located in the mall with seven screens. With the competition of the larger multiplexes in close proximity it was switched to a discount house and was renamed Dollar Cinemas on July 10. 1992.

It has a nice large lobby and large concession area. The entrance is in the mall and has a nice sized triangular shaped marquee over the entrance. It seems to be doing well with the sub run policy as both times I was there there were long lines.

The Dollar Cinemas was closed January 15, 2018.

This opened in 1987. It is one of the first theatres to be built by Cinemark.

If I’m not mistaken, this theatre opened as a discount theatre.

Based on the grand opening ad, this has always been a dollar cinema, showing discount movies.

Newspaper listings from July 10th, 1992 onwards says Discount cinemas. Willing to bet the sign was never changed.
