The Galleria 10 was a 40,000 square-foot, 10-screen multiplex located at the Riverchase Galleria on Alabama Highway 150. It was built in 1988 for Cobb Theaters, which sold all its Birmingham cinemas to Knoxville, Tennessee-based Regal Cinemas in August 1997. Regal operated it until its closing in 2005.

The Galleria 10 was equipped with a seperate 70mm projector in its largest auditorium, thereby joining the Alabama Theatre and the McWane Center as the only operating movie houses in the area with such capabilities. Under Cobb's management, the Galleria 10 hosted the Cobb Cinematique Classic, which programmed art-house, independent and foreign films.

On opening night, May 25, 1988, the following films were screened: Rambo III, The Milagro Beanfield War, The Dead, Crocodile Dundee II, Good Morning Vietnam, Three Men and a Baby, Return to Snowy River Part II, The Fox and the Hound, The Seventh Sign, and Ironweed.

Regal closed the theater on November 13, 2005.

In July 2008 Beauty Basics Inc. of Covington, Louisiana announced plans to convert the multiplex into an Aveda Institute beauty school and salon.
