The Jackson Mall Cinema was opened June 11, 1970. Owned by Ogden-Perry Theatres, Inc.

Briefly became a live performance theatre, before eventually being shuttered permanently in 1985.

Was an outparcel of the first enclosed mall in Mississippi. The cinema was hurt when the Metro Center Cinemas opened in 1978 and then the Northpark Cinemas in 1984.

The mall also closed in 1985. A new good use has been found for it. It is now the Jackson Medical Mall Thad Cochran Center.

The theater entrance faces westward on the north end of what is now the Jackson Medical Mall. Last time I was there a few years back the theater was fully intact, large curved Cinemascope screen and all. It was being leased and operated by the University of Mississippi Medical Center as a large meeting/conference space. No movies being shown there and the manager thought it highly unlikely there ever would be unless the film somehow was related to the educational and healthcare mission of UMMC.
