Information for this tour was contributed by Mark Richey.

Sony (which had taken over Loews and had rebranded all of their Dallas area theaters) built the Cityview a couple miles north of Downtown Dallas in 1995. The theater was a success, so they pretty much repeated their blueprint when they turned a former office park into their newest theater in 1997. The major difference between the Keystone and the Cityview is that the Keystone has stadium seating. Otherwise, they look the same, right down to the "vintage" (1980s and 1990s) movie posters lining the hallways (a touch left over from their older, closed multiplexes) to the tile everywhere that, frankly, makes the place look somewhat like the inside of a bathroom. Interestingly, the theater opened as a "Loews", which all of the Dallas Sony Theaters were about to re-become.

The theater opened on March 21, 1997, after a full day of sneak previews the day before. Part of the fun was a Jim Carrey film festival, which concluded with the premiere screening of "Liar Liar" that night at 12:01. As the only theater left in Richardson (though, technically, itís in Dallas), it still does very good business.

Regal closed the theater on October 17, 2010. It was reopened by Studio Movie Grill on October 12, 2012, as a 12-plex with auditoriums 2 through 5 closed off for future expansion.
