An article in the 1/12/1972 edition of the Arizona Republic reported that "Song of Norway" opened "the new Alco Theater in the La Ronde Shopping Center, Sun City, today..."

A number of articles in the Arizona Republic from early 1978 discussed plans for this theatre to close when its lease was up on 6/1/1978 as it was not supported by the residents of the surrounding Del Webb retirement community.

The theater was used for town meetings for a number of years after and in 1990 a deal was rejected to turn it into a live theater. It has since been turned into a series of medical offices.
