National Amusements took over management of this cinema in 1983 operating it for a decade before it closed permanently.
Later called the Summit Place Cinema after the Pontiac Mall changed its name, it was torn down in 2014 after being abandoned for several years. http://www.theoaklandpress.com/general-news/20140204/crews-begin-demolishing-old-waterford-movie-theater-could-summit-place-mall-be-next
How about bringing back the Beltline Drive-in Theatre?
That should be the Quality 10 GDX.
The benefit opening night at the new cinema was a rousing success with all shows sold out. Details from the Saginaw News at http://www.mlive.com/entertainment/saginaw/index.ssf/2014/01/saginaw_countys_newest_movie_t.html#incart_river

The Saginaw 12 will close permanently on January 12, 2014. The adjacent new Quality 10 GDX which replaces it will open on January 17. The Saginaw 12 will be torn down after February.
This article should be in the “Closings” section.

I already voted for the oldest surviving drive-in in Michigan, the Hi-Way Drive-in Theatre outside Carsonville, MI.
Of course, this theater’s name should be changed to Alamo Drafthouse Kalamazoo and the number of screens changed from 14 to 10. It is being renovated for a planned grand reopening in October.
The Alamo Drafthouse Kalamazoo will have 10 screens.
Of course, the headline should read “Alamo Drafthouse will reopen the former Rave CityPlace 14 in Kalamazoo in October.”
