This theatre has not been demolished! It still stands! The Story:
In the early ‘60’s, the new Seminary South Shopping Center opened at the corner of the new I-35W and Seminary Drive. It was one of the last of the open air shopping centers, being that there were walkways between the stores; soon the mall craze would begin. In the late '60’s, General Cinema decided this would be a good place for a deluxe twin cinema so the Seminary South Cinema I&II opened. This was to be Fort Worth’s version of Dallas’ Northpark Cinema I&II—except no 70MM. In the early ‘80’s, Seminary South Shopping Center became a totally enclosed mall called the Town Center Mall. General Cinema decided to build a new 8-screen theatre inside the mall so abandoned their original theatre which was in the far northwest corner of the mall—quite a distance away. The original theatre was vacant for quite a while but is now reoccupied. The original Cinema I (which was twinned in the late '70’s) is now a bingo hall while the original Cinema II is a church.
