The Salem Mall Cinema opened on November 23, 1966 as a single screen cinema with Jack Lemmon in “The Fortune Cookie”. Later a second cinema was built on to the original building. Then in the late-1970’s the original screen was twined (2 & 3) and a fourth screen added to the rear of the theatre that you had get to by walking the back hall of the Mall.
Sony closed the cinemas in July 1996. Ultra Saver Cinemas reopened the cinema in January 1998. It closed for a day in April 2000 for having mice troubles. The cinema had also been home to a small riot in 1999. On July 29, 2001 Ultra Saver Cinemas closed the fourplex after many nights of only two or three people watching the flicks on screen. The Salem Mall Cinema rent was $17,500, which did not matter since the mall only had five stores open and the city of Trotwood began demolishing the mall starting in April 2005.
