News About This Theater
- May 17, 2012 — REMEMBERING CINERAMA (Part 49: Cleveland)
The Great Northern Theatre opened on March 24, 1966 with Henry Fonda in “Battle of the Bulge” presented in Cinerama. The theatre was in the Great Northern Plaza in North Olmsted. It was originally a single screen theatre. The screen was a curved 90-foot Cinemascope type. After National Theatre Corporation took over the Great Northern from RKO Stanley Warner, the original auditorium was twinned on June 15, 1977. It was subsequently quadded, and later on, three additional screens were added behind the original auditorium, which included the Cleveland area’s first THX sound system.
Regal Cinemas later took over Great Northern Theatre when they bought out National, and the theatres closed on October 22, 2000, after Regal opened a new eight-plex in nearby Westlake. A Dunham’s Sporting Goods store now occupies the former Great Northern Theatre.
