Edward J. DeBartolo launched Castleton Square Mall in 1972 in conjunction with Sears' mall division, Homart Development Company. General Cinema was an original tenant opening its interior GCC Castleton Square I-II-III on September 29th, 1972. Plans for the theatre dated back to 1969. Cinema I seated 293, II seated 299 and III seated 384 for a total of 976 seats.
With its immediate success, GCC looked to add to the Mall which was at capacity. An arrangement was inked that help GCC launch an exterior venue, the Castleton Square Cinema IV-V-VI that opened on November 3, 1976. That theatre was located in an outparcel building on the periphery of the Northeast parking lot. It opened simultaneously with the new GCC Lafayette Square Cinemas II-III-IV.
The interior GCC Castleton Square I-II-III theatre would close with “The Firm” and “Jurassic Park” on July 1, 1993. Its space would be retrofitted for other retail purposes.
The GCC outparcel building was rebranded as the General Cinema Castleton Square Arts in the Summer of 1997 becoming a surprise hit. It would continue as the AMC Castleton Arts 3 when AMC took on the bankrupt GCC chain in 2002. AMC shuttered the triplex on November 27, 2005 (it has its own page on Cinema Treasures)
