Actually, it opened in mid-1970 and was originally a twin. It was turned into a quad around the time AMC took over, it then closed in January 1999 due to increasing competition from larger and newer theaters nearby, especially from the nearby Star 10 theater (on an ironic note, that was also owned by AMC from January 2006 to December 2009). Borders moved into the space formerly occupied by this theater, but it closed in 2011 when the rest of that chain closed. It now sits vacant today.

the theatre opened not long after southland mall itself. the theatre must have opened in about 1972. one of first movies I was able to attend with friends and not have a parent in attendance was American Graffiti and for a fact that was 1973. the mall was much smaller then. at one time it ended just a bit East of Hudsons. Krogers was attached at the east end and Rays prime meats was inside the mall at the east end.

When this theater was closed in 2000, it was gutted and used as the shell for the current Border Books & Music that occupies the corner of Southland Mall.
