Michael R. Rambo Jr. commented about Terminal Theater on Apr 30, 2015 at 5:46 pm

finkysteet, Rite aid never occipied the Goldman’s/Stanley Warner’s/Eric Terminal Theatre site. The site became a walkway to both the Media and Sharon Hill Trolleys (SEPTA Routes 101 and 102), and a secondary entrance into 69th Street Terminal. This was all done during the 1987 reconstruction of the 69th Street Terminal complex that added a third entrance at the back of the Norristown Hi Speed Line

The Net Coat Market started out as Food Fair. The home Depot replaced the old J. M. Fields/The Dry Goods building, the mall itself, and the Warner Drugs/Rite Aid Pharmacy building.

I would assume when this became a 3-plex, one of the twin theatres itself was split into 2?

Fizz1, The Boxoffice article link that Tinseltoes provided for this theatre is from 1966, not the late 50’s. The Plaza opened in 1957. there is also a picture on this page of the opening ad from 1965.
