When General Drive-In Corporation (which became General Cinema Corporation in 1964) began building indoor theaters in shopping centers throughout the country in the 1960s, the company hired architect William Reisman to design them. There were a handful of basic plans, and virtually all new General Cinema houses for more than a decade were variations on one or another of them.

This weblog post has renderings of six of the the GC houses Reisman designed. I don’t think the house at Capital Plaza is among them, but it might have resembled one of them.
