Salem Mall Cinemas come tumbling down
TROTWOOD, OH — The Salem Mall Cinemas are no more. After 39 years of service, the cinemas were demolished yesterday. The Cinemas were a part of the now defunct Salem Mall which was being demolished over the summer to make way for new retail and a city center developement.
The Cinema originally opened in 1967 as a single screen. Later a second screen was added to the building and in the late 70s the original screen was twinned. A fourth screen was added that was accessed through a utility hallway. This I believe is the last mall in the Dayton area that had a cinema actually in the mall.
