General Cinema opened Crossroads Cinema, the last of three twins in the Northwest Indiana area on April 20, 1973. It’s opening night films were “Charlotte’s Web” and “The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean”. The theater, located in Merrillville, was an instant success as Merrillville was just building up the entire area.
In 1991 GCC decided to close the theater and sold it to two buyers who had previously worked there. On September 18, 1992 the Crossroads Cinema became a dollar house that was mildly successful. Due to a falling out between the two owners the theater was closed in 1997 but was purchased shortly thereafter by another former employee who operated it until closure.
Unfortunately, the area is not as nice or safe as it once was and the theater has been robbed recently.
The Crossroads Cinema was closed on October 29, 2006 and was demolished in April 2008.
