The mall opened theater-less on October 4, 1978. It wasn’t until 1982 when the Ohio Valley Mall Cinemas opened its doors. I cannot find information on the original operators or how many screens it originally had before becoming a Carmike 9-screen theater.

that was generally how mall Cinemas used to be signed. This sign looks like the old Serif font signage that GCC used in the 70’s and 80’s mainly so the mall could change the operator without a need to change out the signage.

Yeah, I think that’s the unofficial name.

The theater is almost directly across the mall from the location you mentioned. You see the large store at the top of the mall? The theater is directly south of the two bushes/trees on the left side of that top anchor.

I see the sign says MALL CINEMAS is that another name for the theater?

The red dot is off a bit in the Google Satellite Photo, the theater is to the northwest in the Ohio Valley Mall Shopping Center, sorta to the northeast part of the building, with the lighter roof, right?
