Information for this tour was contributed by Jim Cobb.

This was a major Richmond theatre at one time. When originally opened, it was the first theatre in the area built as part of a shopping center. Later, it became the first theatre in the area equipped for 70mm projection and six channel stereo sound. Among the films shown there on exclusive road show, reserved seat runs on their giant screen were SOUTH PACIFIC, BEN-HUR, WEST SIDE STORY, MARY POPPINS, THE SOUND OF MUSIC (ran over two years!), THE BIBLE, THE SAND PEEBLES, and PATTON. Sadly, this was gutted in the early nineties and turned into a four screen multiplex.
