In addition to having the first "church in the mall", NORTHSHORE CENTER also had the first "mall twin cinema". The General Cinema Corporation Cinema I & II showed its first features in May 1963.

By the time of this 1968 layout, the mall had been expanded on two occasions. The original Kiddie Towne area was moved to accommodate a Sears store (in dark gray), which opened in the fall of 1964. A northeast store block (in lighter gray) has just been completed.
