The Eastwood Mall Theatre was a former cinema that operated from December 25, 1964 to 1990 at Eastwood Mall.

The theater was equipped to show Cinerama movies such as "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "Ice Station Zebra". It hosted the premiere of the 1976 feature Stay Hungry, which was set and filmed in Birmingham. Then unknown actor Arnold Schwarzenegger attended the premiere.

The theater was later divided and operated by Cobb Cinemas as the Eastwood Twin. It closed in 1990, shortly after the debut of the nearby Cobb Festival 12 multiplex.
