Information for this tour was contributed by Mark Richey.

General Cinema built a stand-alone theater about half a mile from Richardson Square Mall (and the mall’s existing, crappy 3-screen) in 1989. The new theater opened October 6 with "An Innocent Man", "In Country", "Night Game", "Dead Poet’s Society", "Batman", and "Turner & Hooch". It was a fairly nice theater, with a slightly different architecture style than Plano’s Collin Creek 6.

The Richardson only lasted 11 years. The week of September 29, 2000, General Cinema, then in bankruptcy, closed it, along with two of their other three remaining theaters in the Dallas area (they spared the Irving 14, which was only a couple years old, almost removing themselves from a market where, ten years earlier, they had had, by far, the most different theaters in the area). I had to twist the final lineup out of the individual movie reviews in the Dallas Morning News, since General Cinema didn’t run an ad that week. I’m fairly sure the last shows were "Almost Famous", "Bring It On", "Chicken Run", "The Exorcist", "Scary Movie", and "Urban Legends: Final Cut".

This former General Cinema six-plex has been converted into an Asian three-plex, restaurant and fun center.
