Further research shows that this opened in 1971.
1965 listings show that Read-Mor Bookstore was here even then.
1959 photo shows there was a restaurant called Pla-Mor Center before the bookstore moved in.
This theater isn’t closed. It’s very much open but showing second run films.
Still says GKC on the signage inside and out. Some of the “Saginaw 10” signage is pretty old, so I wonder if this was always a 10er.
For reference, the Sherwin Williams building about 180 degrees away from the street view is 119.
Yes, that white building in the street view is the old theater.
Best I could do on the street view. It’s weird; even though it was at US-23 and Bloom Rd. it had a Long Lake Rd. address.
Now officially reopened.
The Lehigh Valley cinema is now an HH Gregg store.
I’ve found absolutely nothing saying that NCG is reopening this. Anyone wanna verify?
^Where did you hear this?
Also, I can’t find most of my old phone books right now, but I’m pretty sure that 1987 is the last phone book to list it.
I wonder if this one ended up killing the Cine-Art/Variety/Showcase, which was just outside the base. The Showcase struck me as kind of an odd location, since it’s out of town and not really convenient to anything except the base â€" most likely the Showcase was intended to give people on base a place to watch movies, a function which was supplanted by the Wurtsmith cinema.
Bob â€" It definitely wasn’t a twin. I’ve been in there; it certainly was a small, spartan theater.
Water Winter Wonderland says it closed in ‘86, but it’s still listed in the 1991 phone book. They’ve been wrong before, though.
The East opened in a former Hamady supermarket which left the mall in the 1970s. In 2003, this end of the mall was extensively renovated, and the old theater was torn down for a new food court and a Dick’s Sporting Goods.
West 4 is now retail space within the mall. Most of it is now a Justice clothing store.
The building has been torn down for health offices.
Description’s inaccurate now. This was always the only DI in Mundy Township. For a long time, Flint did have two DI’s (the Miracle Twin being the other) but it wasn’t even close nearby. 23 is now the only one left.
There are now health offices on the site.
The theater complex is still vacant. For the past several years, Courtland Center has slowly been losing tenants.
The Rowena first opened in 1913 in the 100 S. block of Leroy, with 200 seats. Six years later, it moved to 115 N. Leroy, which was a 400-seater. It was named for the daughter of Marcus Peck, the original owner.
A 1977 directory lists it as still being in business. Most of downtown Fenton was torn down in the late 1970s for a short-lived mall.
The site is now occupied by Pheasant Run Manor Apartments.
John O. Smith was the manager in 1977.
This is now split among a few retail and office suites, including a medical care center, Armed Forces recruiting and a nail salon.
