Information for this tour was contributed by Todd Parr.

The Cine 6 opened on April 25, 1968 as the Duex Cine. In 1972, two auditoriums were added to the front of the building and the name was changed to Cine 4. In 1978, two more auditoriums were added to the side of the lobby and auditorium #2 and the the named was changed again to Cine 6. At some time in 1980-1982 period, there were plans on the drawing board to add 4 more screens and make this Cine 10, but parking and the inability to purchase the open field directly behind the theatre from the Padre Staples Mall led to the city not allowing any more expansion on site due to parking limitations. The Cine 6 closed on August 2, 2001.
