This opened as the Avondale Mall Cinema 16 on July 8th, 1994. Grand opening ad in the photo section. It closed in 2000.

It takes a bad"hood" to close Malls.Same thing happened at REGENCY MALL in Augusta.Woman got raped,one teenage girl was kidnapped found her out in woods with a shotgun blast to the face,yep it closed and so did a Triple theatre in the mall and an eight plex out in the parking lot.

Macy’s was shuttered in 1995, with the Cinema 16 multiplex installed on its second level in 1997. The mall continued to founder, nonetheless. The motion picture venue was shuttered in 2000.

This theater and surrounding mall have been demolished and the Wal-Mart is already open. I did go to Northeast Plaza several times but never attended this theater.

Avondale Mall, formerly Columbia Mall was never much of a mall. Although it had a Davidsons and a Sears, there was not much between the two stores.

One interesting tidbit about Columbia Mall was Chuck Norris filmed a scene of his movie Invasion U.S.A. at this mall.

Yep, 3 years and it was a decent 16 plex, but a bad “hood” coupled with a bankrupt operator (O'Neil). They also owner the NE Plaza 16 that lasted a bit longer.

A 16-plex opened in 1997 and closed in 2000? Yikes.

The Avondale Mall Cinema 16 address is 3604 Memorial Dr 30032. The theatre was built in what was formally a Macys store. It opened in 1997 and promptly closed 3 years later.

This Theater is now closed sitting in a totally abandoned shopping mall (Avondale Mall). There is much controversy going on regarding Wal-Mart wanting to tear down the entire mall sight (including the theaters) and build a Super Center.
