The Gulfgate, Meyerland, and Northline Cinema’s were each cast from the same mold: two auditoriums, one seating around 900 the other with a capacity of approximately 500, joined together with a shared lobby in the centre. This design was one of General Cinemas best in that it afforded great sightlines with an excellent sound system. Unfortunately, all save the Meyerland, were sliced up during the late-1970’s and converted into quads. The Gulfgate was demolished a few years ago and the Meyerland is slated to be razed. The Northline Cinema was opened on April 14, 1965 and closed toward the end of 1996. It was demolished in 2001.
