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.

Blair Theatres operated this location in the 80s before selling it to United Artists.

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.
