I am amazed when local theaters such as this- that were around for decades - only get 4 comments!

This was opened on June 25th, 1969. Its grand opening ad can be found in the photo section.

I remember seeing “Chariots of the Gods?” at the Lansing Mall with my dad in 1973 (when I was 11), as well as “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” twice (once in December 1977 and again in March 1978). (In June 1978 I moved to Illinois with my family.)

And yes, the Lansing Mall Theater did have a gold waterfall curtain.

By the way: ABC Theaters (a division of the network) owned the Lansing Mall Theater from its opening in 1970 until around late 1975, when ABC sold off its theater division to Plitt Theaters. Plitt then owned and operated the Lansing Mall until its closing. (When Plitt closed the Lansing Mall Theater in 1986, they had just merged with Cineplex Odeon Theaters.)
