I'm not sure exactly when it closed, but it was within the past 2 weeks. Originally a GCC 3-plex, it was closed by AMC and reopened by an independent operator. They closed and it was reopened by another independent operator who obviously couldn't make it, either. This mall is beyond dead, so I can't see a third operator trying to reopen this venue. (Literally the only things left in the mall were a bridal shop, a hot dog stand, Sears, Penney's Outlet and the theaters.)

I took some photos of the theater when it was open, hopefully Adam recieved them a few months ago.

Well, don't get too excited, I only got exteriors as the theater wasn't yet open for the day at the time I visited. I did notice their marquee varied a bit from the standard GCC signage, the font was the same, but it said 'Cinema 1 2 3' instead of the standard 'Cinema I II III'. I assume this was done for space purposes as the marquee is only as wide as the entrance.
