This theatre opened January 16, 1981 by the Plitt Theatres chain at the River Oaks West Center just a few blocks away from where the other theatres where located. Both screens sat about 500 people each and the seats were normal and didn’t have rocking seats like theatres 1 and 4 did.
What I can remember was that the seats were red and the back of it was kinda gray mixed with black, the auditorium walls were dark red with gold lights around it. And, as you entered the place, the concession stand was right in front of you and, to the left of the concession stand was the restrooms and the auditoriums.
If I remember correctly, this place was used for 70mm but I’m not sure. Back in the day, this was the place for indie and first run flicks. In the 90s I saw “Jungle Fever”, “Hudson Hawk”, “A Low Down Dirty Shame”, “Kiss The Girls”, and others all at 11 and 12. From what I saw the last time I was there, when I saw “Species 2” in April of 1998, it was packed. But, in July of that year, Loews Cineplex closed it down and it sat vacant until 2004 when it was demolished to make way for more retail space. A sad end for what was the best River Oaks Theatre in my opinion.
