Above, we have a depiction of an AT-MALL CINEMA. In this type of installation, the venue was built as a freestanding peripheral structure of the mall proper. Cinema I and II operated at Houston's MEYERLAND PLAZA between 1965 and 1995.
Our first depiction of an IN-MALL CINEMA...which was built as part of the physical structure of Columbus, Ohio's -open-air- NORTHLAND CENTER. As one can see, its entrance was directly connected into the central mallway of the retail hub. The Northland Cinema was in operation between 1964 and 1985.
Above, we have a representation of America's first IN-MALL / enclosed mall cinema. A tenant in New Jersey's CHERRY HILL MALL, it entertained the local populace between 1962 and 1987.
