The Akron Square Cine' 6 was located at the former Akron Square Mall. The cinemas were opened in the mid-1970’s as a last ditch effort to save this dying mall. By the late 1980’s, all that was left of Akron Square were the cinemas and a Montgomery Ward store. The cinemas closed about 1998, soon after Wards closed, and the entire mall was demolished soon afterward. National Theatre Corporation of Cleveland operated the Akron Square Cine' 6.

Original addresses, years of operation and current use are listed. (Note: Some streets no longer exist and some addresses were changed when buildings were renumbered during remodeling.) How many of these places do you remember visiting? Akron Square Cinema 6 — 1615 S. Arlington St., 1976-1994. Demolished 1994….

All of Akron was sadly becoming part of the Rust belt.
