Courtland Cinemas close
BURTON, MI — The Courtland Center Cinemas closed its doors after the last shows Sunday, December 11. This National Amusements cinema is the second cinema to close in as many months in Genesee County. The Fenton Cinemas ) closed last month. This is the third National Amusements cinema in the Flint area to close in recent months.
They had previously closed the Showcase Cinemas Flint East and the Cinema 10. Looking at the Cinema 10’s attraction board now, the message which previously said to visit the Showcase Cinemas Flint West, Cinema 10 and Miracle Twin Drive-in now reads visit the Showcase Cinemas Flint West. So the future of the Miracle Twin Drive-in Theatre, the last remaining National Amusements drive-in theater, is uncertain. We will find out for sure by May.
This leaves two National Amusements cinemas still in operation in Michigan. Besides the Showcase Cinemas Flint West in Flint, they still operate the Showcase Cinemas Ann Arbor ) in Ypsilanti.
Further details about the Courtland Cinemas closing can be found in the Flint Journal.
