This opened on March 29th, 1972 with three screens. Grand opening ad in the photo section.

Brookdale East opened in 1972 as a triplex seating 720 in Cinema I (with a GCC shadow box encase screen) and 386 in CinemasII & III. I believe that Cinema I was split into two theatres in 1978 or 1979. I always liked the design of this theatre, even with the painted concrete block. The layout was very efficient and the lobby attractive. In the evening, the lobby seemed to glow and welcome the theatre patrons.

It might have closed in 2000 but it wasn’t GCC then. When GCC closed it most of the concession stand went to Southtown as did some of the equipment.
