I believe the mall tore it down to build a strip plaza with a Target or other big box store.. I know Teicher did not have an option to renew the lease.

The original Cinema National University Mall Cinema 1-2-3 opened October 18, 1974. In 1976, United Artists took on the location. In February of 1979 UA doubled the screen count to the unwieldy UA University Mall 1, 2, 3 & 4, 5 6. In 1982, a two-screen theatre called the Cinema Tavern opened adjacent to the University Mall with two screens.

UA would expand again with an 8-screen theatre called University North and the older theatre called University South. The Silver Screen, a four-screen discount house behind the mall opened possibly in the Cinema Tavern spot – but perhaps not. The UA would close the older theatre which became a live venue for a brief period while the larger theatre would become the University Mall Dollar Movies 8 under Teicher and closing in 2008. It became a house of worship before being demolished.
