Information for this tour was contributed by James Gonzalez.

Opened in the early 1980s as AMC 8 Theatre, inside of Westgate Mall in SW Austin.

When ACT III Theatres purchased the Presidio Theatres chain in the late 1980s, they also purchased all the AMC Theatres in Austin.

Officially called Presidio 8 Theatres, it was more commonly called the Westgate 8 Theatre.

About the time Regal Cinemas merged with ACT III Theatres (late 90s), the Westgate 8 was forced to close due to Westgate Mall being remodeled from an enclosed mall to a strip mall. The closure gave Regal the opportunity to remodel the Westgate and add 3 new stadium seating auditoriums.

The theatre reopened in the summer of 1999 as Regal Cinemas Westgate 11. The original 8 (sloped floor) auditoriums were converted to riser seating auditoriums. Riser seating is not exactly stadium seating, but is a little more than steps on a sloped floor.
