The cinema remained connected to the mall. It operated until October 5, 2000, when GCC closed it for good. Shortly thereafter another “company” re-opened the theater for a few months, but was shut down again when they neglected to pay rent – ever. The cinema, along with the vacant Montgomery Ward’s store, was demolished in 2004 to make way for a new shadow anchor (i.e. within spitting distance yet unconnected) Wal-Mart Super Center that opened in 2005.
Address: 4000 W. Tuscarawas St., Canton.
In operation 1911-1916.
The Lyn — 450 E. Waterloo Road, 1947-1991. Demolished in 1991. What’s there now: Blockbuster Video.
