A recent Instagram post suggests that this is no longer an active theater. ☹️

Kmart of course is long gone. It’s now Home Depot on the site.

I saw the Gus Van Zant Psycho here, which according to Imbd was 1998. (Awful movie). I don’t recall much other than it was a plain theater and rather large. Odd that there are no pictures.

Marquee still visible in August of 2019.

Still there as of 2019. Reportedly the nearby mall interior is completely closed. All the main anchors are gone. Couple exterior stores are apparently all that is left. Sears, Carson’s, JCP Penny all closed. Sears was the last open, closing in Jan 2019.

Looks just like a vacant store front. The only clues are a covered up ticket booth and some poster frames. All signage has been removed.

As of June 2019, there appears to be significant water damage inside. I’d guess the roof is leaking.

Oh, so great! The vertical piece is gone. ☹️

No visible evidence of the drive in remains. It’s just an open field.

Cannot find. Demolished?

Rolled by today and it appears it has been closed for quite a while, though a news article said it closed in May. It still stands, but appears completely gutted. Marquee gone and all counters and fixtures are gone from the lobby. From the internet;

NORTON SHORES, MI – Plaza 1 & 2 in Norton Shores is no more.

The discount theater owned by Studio C closed on Tuesday, May 29, the owners announced on Tuesday in a news release.

“We love this city, and these are tough choices,” said Emily Loeks, director of community affairs for Studio C, in the release.

No explanation was given for the sudden closure.

Studio C also owns and operates the Cinema Carousel and Getty Drive In in the Muskegon area.

“The good news is that we’ve been investing in significant updates to Cinema Carousel and the Getty Drive in,” Loeks said in a statement. “Attendance at those locations has been increasing, as community members have discovered how much they enjoy the improved projection and sound at the Getty, rocker and reclining seats at Carousel and enhanced food and beverage options.”

Based on google maps it appears the “popular downtown tavern” is Nigs of “Have a Swig at Nigs” fame. If you’ve seen it, you can’t forget that name.
