Please update to show originally General Cinema and later Goodrich Quality Theatres as the operators.

When I left Michigan in 1977 it was still a single. General Cinema split it in 1978, and Goodrich took it over in 1984, at which time it flip-flopped between a first-run and bargain house, depending on the prevailing market conditions in the area.

Here is the final word on Green Acres Cinema: Goodrich Theaters ceased operations here in Sept, 1991. After sitting dormant for over two years, I renovated and reopened this theater on November 19, 1993. We ran sub-run until I lost the lease and was forced to close on January 2, 1996. The property was leased to “Linens And More” which had previously occupied a smaller space in the mall. They went belly up after a short time and “Hancock Fabrics” moved into its place and remains there today. I’m gratified by the occasional comment that Green Acres Cinema was, during my brief ownership, “the best theatre in Saginaw”.

Hancock Fabrics closed about 5 years ago. The space is still vacant because the strip mall’s owners kicked nearly everyone out in hopes of luring Wal-Mart.

Correction: the store became Lakeshore Rescue Mission in 2011.

Was the cinema named after the television series, Green Acres?

I bet this cinema was the place to be?
