General Information:

AKA Cinemark Cinema 4

This 4 screen theatre was one of the early multi-plexes to spring up in the suburbs in the 70s. The auditoriums were quite small and pretty much looked like a basement with carpeting. The only advantage was it was within walking distance of the many nearby neighborhoods, including mine. The theatre changed hands a few times and finally died around the time the enormous Southfield 20 opened up nearby. I used to walk over there with my friends and sneak in. Most of the kids that worked at the theater were from my neighborhood and they turned a blind eye to us as we snuck past the box office! The tiny mall area where the box office was has been converted to a Secretary of State and the auditorium area is now a Golds Gym.

By the time I was a child in the 80s, this was a dollar house. I dont recall it ever being anything but! Mom never took us to first-run movies, in fact she rarely took us to movies at all. But if we absolutely HAD to see something (still ... six months after it came out ...) this was the place.
