This 6-screen GCC opened in October 26, 1984 and was a transitional design, more modern than Perimeter Mall, but not what the Merchants Walk, Parkside or Hairston would look like. I don’t remember which one was first, but GCC and the Plitt Mall Corners opened about the same time. This location was like a set of triples backed up by a common lobby. The houses were about 400, 275, and 220 seats. One of the large houses was equipped with a Cinemeccanica V5 35/70mm projector and the rest were 35mm V8’s. I do not recall 70mm ever being run here.
This was a nice booth to work but I do not recall anything remarkable about its history.
Closed down along with the rest of GCC operations, except for the new Parkway Point in 2000. Like the Merchants Walk, Hairston and Parkside, this location was closed down when GCC declared bankruptcy, which allowed them to break the lease. It was demolished in January 2019.
