WATERFORD, MI — The long abandoned three-screen Summit Place Cinemas was demolished under orders from Waterford Township as it has been determined to be unsafe. Built by General Cinemas as the Pontiac Mall twin cinema, one of its auditoriums was carved making the theater a triple. It was sold to National Amusements in 1983. Renamed the Summit Place Cinemas after the Pontiac Mall was renamed Summit Place, it sat vacant for more than 20 years before it was ordered demolished.

Further details are in the Oakland Press and there is a video tour of the abandoned cinema on YouTube.
