Northgate opened as a three-screener as mentioned in the intro write-up. The expansion to five screens took place in 1974.

Northgate Cinemas was a very popular complex back in the 70s & 80s. I used to take my family there all the time. It is located in Colerain Township. Northgate Mall was a great mall for its time as well. Like most areas around greater Cincinnati, it started getting ghettoized in the 90s with the onslaught of Section 8 housing. The mall and the theater complex became a hangout for thugs. People stopped coming to both. They ended up demolishing the theaters and tried to reinvent the mall. Nothing is working. Including the thugs.
