General Cinema opened this theater on June 15, 1979, the last twin to open in Northwest Indiana. It’s premiere attractions were “Butch and Sundance:The Early Days” and “Rocky 2”. It was located in a strip mall in the very southeast corner which made it hard to see from either W. Ridge Road or Cline Avenue. This strip mall was the site of the Ridge Road Drive-In which had closed two years ealier.
Unlike the other GCC twins in the area, Griffith Park’s auditoriums were longer in length and smaller in width. The theater did well since it normally played movies exclusively. In the mid-1990’s the theater began to fall on hard times due to competing multiplexes and General Cinema finally closed its doors in 1998. The giant read Cinema I-II sign on the building still sits there though the lobby is virtually empty save for the skeleton of the concession stand.
