As I recall in the late ‘90’s after the Movies 12 opened in Ames, The Mall I&II, North Grand 5, and Varsity were bought by Cinemark from Central States Theaters (which ran all the theaters in Ames at the time), there was talk about the Mall II turning into a discount theater. Eventually, Cinemark made the North Grand the discount theater and closed the Mall II. It was gutted and turned into store space, first a Sam Goody, now it’s an exercise equipment store.

On November 18, 1971, the Central States Theatre Circuit opened its latest Ames cinema with the Mall Theatres 1 & 2. Its first films were “Scandalous John” and “T.R. Baskin.” The circuit opened a second mall theater with the North Grand 5 in 1996. The twin-screen theater closed in the summer of 1998 with Cinemark opening the Movies 12 megaplex. Cinemark then purchased the remaining mall theater, the North Grand 5, converting it to dollar house runs from 1999 to 2014.
